These are a few case studies of the type of research that we undertake.
Ashbrook has been conducting a comprehensive programme of Stakeholder Tracking Research on behalf of SQA since 2001. We engage with professional audiences (FE colleges, secondary schools, employers and training providers) and public audiences (potential candidates and parents of potential candidates).
Ashbrook has been carrying out Domestic Tracking Research on behalf of Scottish Enterprise since 2009. We explore the experiences, expectations and needs a range of audiences in Scotland, particularly companies and organisations who work with Scottish Enterprise, or who have the potential to work with them.
In 2013 and 2017, Ashbrook was commissioned to look at perceptions of the Technology & Engineering Sector in Scotland. The 2017 study, in particular, sought to identify how perceptions of the sector, and any issues surrounding them, had changed through time.
In 2017, Ashbrook was commissioned to carry out a study relating to the learning experiences and needs of education practitioners and other staff in FE colleges across Scotland.
“Ashbrook Research and Consultancy Limited provided a first class consultancy service for us on a refreshed Perception Study. Communication was excellent – before, during and after the project. All activity was logged systematically and reports created were professional and on time. Throughout the process Ashbrook staff were professional, helpful and friendly and I would look forward to working with the company again.”
