About: Ever since 1946 we have been working to equip decision makers, managers and practitioners with the most innovative thinking, practical research and responsive assessment programmes to underpin the drive towards excellence in education and lifelong learning.  

We undertake around 200 research projects every year and our work spans all sectors of education, from pre-school to lifelong learning. We provide high quality, evidence-based research for policy makers, managers and practitioners. Our unrivalled experience enables us to offer a wide range of services and information sites, making NFER a one-stop-shop for anyone interested in education and educational research.

NFER owes its success to the calibre of its 260 staff, who are based in our offices in Slough, York and Swansea.

The Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation and is a registered charity (registered charity no. 313392).

NFER the first fifty years 1946-1996 by Jeff Griffiths is available to buy for £5 more.

Our aim is to improve education and training, nationally and internationally, by undertaking research, development and dissemination activities and by providing information services.
