Education and Childhood Research Group (ECRG)

The Education and Childhood Research Group (ECRG) encompasses four strands of research:

  • Equity in education
  • Pedagogy
  • Childhood, children and young people
  • Sustainability in education.

These four Strands are committed to deliver UWE Bristol's values, vision and strategy through real world research and scholarship that seeks to transform futures.

ECRG is made up of researchers, associates and doctoral researchers throughout the School and welcomes active membership and collaboration from across the University. The ECRG is led by Professor Alpesh Maisuria (, Professor of Education Policy in Critical Education at UWE Bristol. 

Details of the activities of the Group are advertised through our social media site, X (formerly Twitter). We also include details of our activities within some of our blog posts. We further advertise our events via UWE Bristol email to relevant groups and individuals.
