Engaging practitioners in research and encouraging reflective practice are central to NRDC’s remit. The Practitioner-Led Research Initiative (PLRI), which ran from 2004 to 2006, supported 17 groups of literacy, language and numeracy (LLN) practitioners in designing, developing and completing hands-on research and development projects. These projects addressed policy priorities in Skills for Life and important messages have emerged which will help in the future development of the strategy. The projects were carried out in three rounds, with each round having a clear theme.
