Adroit-e Town Centre Research STRATFORD-ON-AVON Adroit-e Town Centre Research makes headline news wherever it’s conducted. This approach to finding out citizens’ perceptions and attitudes is focussed on producing results which are actionable by the various communities in the town. Each town is treated as a unique research proposition – its character, issues and sense of community form the core of the question set – we encourage the use of some questions we have used in other towns to form useful opportunities for comparison but these are not compulsory. The main features include: * Town centre research commissioned by your local MP Nadhim Zahawi * The research is conducted by an independent 3rd party Research company, Adroit-e Research Phase 1 * Research design is conducted by steering group formed by Nadhim Zahawi MP * Data collection is conducted by trained volunteers (local school or college recruits) * Topline results are made available for publication and the media within 24 hours * Insight report is produced within 10 days for publication in offline and online media. * Transparency, openness and independence of process throughout Phase 2 * Volunteer college and school students working with the data collected are trained to conduct + Data interpretation + Facilitating discussion groups of their peers + Recording conclusions for submission to the steering group and others * Research discussion groups focus on the youth voice
Sponsoring the Training
An Educational Legacy â€“ Working with School and College student volunteers
Adroit-e has been training students to conduct field research for the past 4 years. Great success has been achieved with the unique Adroit-e approach. The aim is to ensure that the interview between respondent and researcher, absolutely crucial to the research process, is conducted in a conversational style with total integrity.
Sought Outcomes of Training: • •

Phase 2 : Conducting Data Driven Discussions (DDD) * Data Interpretation - examining the data derived from the town centre research to understand the meaning – learning basic statistics uses * Preparing an agenda for a data driven discussion – sorting 3-4 key issues and how they appear to be affecting the young people of the town * Facilitating a discussion – learning how to organise and conduct a discussion of their peers to bring out views, and importantly examples of issues underpinning the statistical findings * Recording conclusions - summarising conclusions - presenting them for agreement by the group – transmitting them as a report to the steering group
Facilitating Data Driven Discussions
Enormous gains can be made from quantitative research findings. As an example, we can identify that 67 per cent of citizens are satisfied or very satisfied with the shopping facilities. However if we can use this data to find out what the less satisfied are thinking, where they go and why, what they really want in the town, then we have obtained further evidence on which to build a revised retail strategy. The sought outcome of the training is to develop effective group facilitation skills among young people, to find out the elusive young person’s view points.
Sponsorship Package B Phase 2 Training Includes: • 5 hour training for up to 20 students • Materials • Video equipment • Experienced trainers • Venue and refreshment £4250.00
