There’s a very interesting conference in Paris right now. Such a pity I’m not there. In fact, this post only appears now, because I only just found out about it. Looking forward to reading the papers.

Q-step: better quantitative skills for students and social scientists

Q-Step is a new initiative for boosting the quantitative skills of UK social scientists.  If you’re an interested teacher, researcher, student, stakeholder etc., you can go to their inaugural event on 17 March in London:

“The UK has a shortage of social science graduates with the quantitative skills needed to evaluate evidence, analyse data, and design and commission research, skills that are increasingly in demand from employers across all sectors. Yet fewer post-16 students in the UK study maths and statistics than any other comparable country, and quantitative skills are not consistently assessed in social science A levels. This has lead to a skills deficit amongst students moving from secondary to higher education.”
