Dr Jake Anders
808
UCL Institute of Education
20 Bedford Way
London
WC1H 0AL
Appointment
  • Associate Professor Centre for Education Improvement Science
  • IOE - Learning & Leadership
  • UCL Institute of Education
Biography

Jake completed his first degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at New College, University of Oxford, followed by a PhD in Economics of Education at UCL Institute of Education. During this period, he also undertook a secondment to the UK Parliament's House of Commons Education Select Committee as a Committee Specialist. After completing his PhD, Jake joined the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, first as a Research Officer, before being promoted to Research Fellow. Jake then rejoined UCL Institute of Education in the Department of Learning and Leadership, first as a Senior Research Fellow before being promoted to Associate Professor.

Research Summary

Jake's research focuses on the causes and consequences of educational inequality and the evaluation of policies and programmes aimed at reducing it. This has included research projects for multiple UK government departments, such as work for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills into the transition from education into work, as well as leading the randomised evaluation of an Education Endowment Foundation project focused on improving teachers' use of formative assessment. His doctoral research consisted of three linked studies considering aspects of socio-economic inequality in access to higher education in England, considering both the point of entry to university but also its precursors. This is something Jake's more recent work has also developed, including work with a third sector organisation (who focus on tutoring and mentoring students to prepare them for university) on improving their evaluation capacity, and a project funded by the Nuffield Foundation on the importance of subject choice at age 14.
