Nick von Behr - Research and Analysis

I've worked in STEAM education, skills, careers and diversity policy since 2002. This has ranged from indirect work for Government Departments via professional and learned bodies, to independent consultancy.

I also had a spell with BSI about the economic benefits of standards which is illustrated by the below video we produced, as well as on a UK Quality Infrastructure partnership for which we developed a separate identity and website.

There are two key issues in policy delivery:

            a) that the evidence for change is often used subjectively to support political arguments

            b) that the devil is in the detail of applying good ideas to reality

Generic policy may look great, but what often matters is how it is supported, specified and delivered in the real world.
