We hold a range of seminars and other events throughout the academic year, offering a forum for students, academics and practitioners to share and develop their ideas in a collegial and supportive atmosphere. CEPA represents a broad set of interests within its four Research Programmes: Teacher Education, Higher Education, Philosophy of Education, and Citizenship, Social Cohesion and Social Change. 

We welcome collaborations from outside the university, and if you are interested in attending any events or sharing your own work, please contact Associate Director Dr Catherine O’Connell. Some events are aligned with other centres in the University, and we have a series co-funded by the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain (PESGB) North West branch.
