Since we started Shift in 2001, our education marketing agency have conducted 100s of focus groups, spoken to 1000s of respondents, donated over £40,000 to charities on behalf of our respondents and paid over a quarter of a million pounds in incentives. Last year alone we conducted research in 18 languages across 91 countries. We’ve been busy!

Case Studies

Over the past 12 years we have had the privilege of working on a great variety of successful projects; from pure desk-based research and small scale qualitative focussed projects to more complex multi-modal studies. Each client and project is unique. We can work in stages, with a single methodology or by blending several to create a research design that meets the needs of our clients. With the kind permission from select clientele, we present a collection of case studies showcasing our expertise, skill set and approach in delivering actionable insights.

Interesting articles and links

As we are immersed in educational issues every day, we are well poised to help inform our clients about new, fast-moving and future developments. We offer Shift Learning’s White Papers, written to help our clients make decisions, and to introduce and illustrate the portfolio of research services we offer. As an education marketing agency, we also provide easy access to useful, and publicly available, links to education-related resources. These links are regularly updated to reflect current policies and hot topics, enabling our clients to access readily available information at their fingertips.
