Research for the Real World: S08E02
Francis Green, Professor of Work and Education Economics
Dr Sam Sims is joined by Professor Francis Green to talk about his interest and academic journey covering labour economics, education economics and political economy.
Professor Green also discusses his research focusing on education, skills, the graduate labour market and the quality of work.
With reduced inward migration following Brexit, what’s happened to the training and upskilling of Britain’s workers, and how has the pandemic affected things?
Recent research authored by Professor Green examines job quality. What lies behind the long-term intensification of work in Britain? And why is it most felt by teachers?
