CASS provides short courses for academic social scientists and applied researchers in government, market research and the independent and voluntary sectors. The courses cover topics in survey design and implementation, survey sampling, data collection and data analysis methods.
Courses are usually of two to three days duration and may be at an introductory, intermediate or more advanced level. Teaching is interactive and responsive to participants' needs, with a dynamic learning environment created through the use of mixed teaching techniques. All courses include practical sessions or computer workshops to enable participants to put learned methods into practice. They run in all regions of the UK, in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
