Economic and Social Research Council
This collection of resources from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) gives support materials for teachers in schools, helping to provoke debate and discussions and providing useful statistics about the UK population. The materials can be used to explore aspects of mathematics, psychology and health as well as economics and other social science disciplines.
The ESRC is the UK's largest organisation for funding research and postgraduate training on economic and social issues. It supports independent, high quality research relevant to business, the public sector and voluntary organisations. At any one time the ESRC supports over 4,000 researchers and postgraduate students in academic institutions and independent research institutes.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
