Centre for Labour Market Studies (CLMS)
The Centre for Labour Studies is a group within the School which takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of work, organisations, employment, skills and learning.
Our research is clustered around four major themes:
- Youth Transitions to Work
- Employability and Locality
- Work and Worker Organisation
- Skills, Performance and Development
The centre has an international reputation for high quality research and teaching which has direct relevance for both the policy-making and practitioner communities.
CLMS has a governance structure which distributes fundung to support School researchers who have an interest in employment relations, workplace learning and the labour market. Colleagues can bid for up to £2,500 to pump prime projects, fund initial research ideas and feasibility studies, scoping exercises etc. which may form the foundation of larger and ultimately externally funded projects.
