Welcome to the Q-Step wiki

Q-Step is a £19.5 million programme designed to promote a step-change in quantitative social science training. Over a five-year period from 2013, fifteen universities across the UK are delivering specialist undergraduate programmes, including new courses, work placements and pathways to postgraduate study. Expertise and resources will be shared across the higher education sector through an accompanying support programme, which will also forge links with schools and employers.

Q-Step was developed as a strategic response to the shortage of quantitatively-skilled social science graduates. It is funded by the Nuffield Foundation, the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). For more information go to www.nuffieldfoundation.org/q-step.

This wiki is intended to support the Q-Step community to allow:

  • dissemination of Q-Step teaching material and information about events etc.
  • contribution of ideas and content related to the aims of the Q-Step programme
  • fostering collaboration and communication in the Q-Step community
  • discussion of any topic related to the Q-Step programme
