Our Research strategy sets out our aims:
- To support and promote research engagement within the education workforce
- To develop research capacity in the Welsh education system
- To develop the EWC’s evidence base to inform policy development
- To use research evidence to enhance our ability to influence policy and policy implementation.
The principles which underpin our research activity mean that we want our research activity to:
- maximise the potential of data we hold and activity that is already routinely undertaken,
- be timely and relevant to policy makers and practitioners alike,
- be co-produced where appropriate, and
- be aligned with our roles and remit.

Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) Call For Evidence: Partial Review Shortage Occupation List -Teachers
In May 2016, the Home Secretary wrote to the chair of the Migration Advisory Committee and commissioned it to examine whether there is a shortage of teachers, or teachers in specific subjects which it would be sensible to fill through non-European Economic Area (EEA) migration. Following on from this, the MAC issued a call for evidence. The Education Workforce Council (EWC) was invited by the committee to provide information to support their review.
The EWC provided a response which gave a Welsh dimension and used valuable data both from the Register of Practitioners, and from practitioner surveys to support their work.
