New investigations, new data and new roles at Help Me Investigate

Help Me Investigate Education has a new team of editors, brand new investigations – and lots of ideas for new ones. We’re also looking for new contributors to get involved with the website.

There are several ongoing investigations, from school meals to information on students’ school records, in the pipeline and they will begin appearing on the website in next few weeks.

In the past we’ve looked at the cost to higher education institutions of student non-completions, using HEFCE data.

We’ve looked at the opportunities available to those with severe special needs in the UK, using OFSTED reports and SEN statistics.

As well as investigations this there will be regular posts on education and curation of the biggest news across the sector. These are to help with investigations into the area and provide ideas for those who want to begin an investigation but do not know where to start.

Another exciting development will be the creation of a data store using Data Hub. This is planned to be a hub of published information relating to education, whether it be policy, guidance and information from open data. Many of the uploads will come from government sources who are routinely publishing the information but not collating them in one easy to access place.

If you would like to get involved with Help Me Investigate Education there are many ways to do so, and you don’t need any experience to join the team. More details here.
