The Church of England is blessed with a wealth of highly qualified people conducting their own research into ministry-related issues. Below are some of the reports we know of in the area of Intial Ministerial Education Phase 2, and we will add more as they emerge.
None of these studies was conducted by or on behalf of the Ministry Division, so we can take no credit and bear no responsibility for their content. If you would like more information about any of the reports, please contact the author directly. You can read reports of Ministry Division's research in this area here.
