Liverpool Hope University is a teaching led, research informed, unique and pro-active institution of learning. It is focused upon the development of academic staff who are high quality, world-renowned teachers and scholars and whose research is current, focused on the development of new knowledge in well established areas of recognised expertise, and capable of contributing to the greater good of individuals in local, national and international communities. Liverpool Hope recognises that it is located in a dynamic, 21st Century technology rich, diverse and global learning environment where collaborative relationships among its staff will lead to achieving world class results in teaching, research and community service.
Academics within the Faculty of Education have a wide range of research, teaching and professional experience in the UK and overseas. This includes working in formal education programmes, further and higher education institutions, governments and international development agencies.
Since acquiring full University status in 2005, the University has supported its academic staff in its growth towards recognition as a world-class body of scholars whose professional and teaching activity is informed by current and relevant research.
This transition is supported in the Faculty of Education through the recognition of the need to continually re-develop a research vision and strategy capable of achieving the final stages of transition from a predominantly 'teaching only institution' to a well supported university faculty where teaching and research are inseparable components of a world class scholarly environment by inquiry driven professional behaviour.
Academic staff within the Faculty of Education have been successful in attracting funding for their research from a range of sources including the UK Research Councils, public bodies, businesses, the European Union and other international funders. Faculty members publish their research in a range of national and international peer reviewed formats.
