The Economic Research Council, Britain’s oldest economics-based think tank, is dedicated to extending the reach of economic education, debate and leadership. In support of this, the ERC raises the profile of economic conversations; we host events to cultivate wider accessibility, inclusion and civic participation.

We support education…

The ERC has links with a number of schools, both state and independent, in and outside the capital. We offer a range of informative materials for teachers as well as running a forecasting competition each year in which students can compete against professional economists and economic modellers, receiving monthly updates and providing excellent talking points for class discussion. We also offer a range of discounts for students to attend our events, with tickets priced between £5 and £10.

We also connect proactive, able students with a range of work experience placements, both with the ERC and beyond.

If you are a school and would like to get involved with the ERC, please email us by clicking here.

If you work in economics or finance, and are interested in taking one or more of our students for a work experience placement, please get in touch here.
