Research for Practice

You bring a range of skills and knowledge about using research, evidence, and feedback with you from your undergraduate experience, and will continue to develop these skills throughout your career in response to the type of work you are doing or are working towards.


Thinking about what you already know

As it says in the introduction, you already have skills and knowledge that you can use in practice and will need to keep developing them. Make a start on your ongoing development by taking a few minutes to note down what you remember about the and knowledge and skills you developed about using research and evidence to inform practice  from your undergraduate experience and how you have used these skills up to this point.


To enhance the ability of newly qualified practitioners to gather and present evidence of applying research skills and knowledge in the workplace.

Learning Outcomes:

At the end of this unit, and following a period of reflective practice, you will be able to:
