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.

There are two key issues in policy delivery:

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

            b) 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.
