- to facilitate the collection and analysis of evidence to substantiate innovative policies and practices.

- designing and assessing the effectiveness of continuing training to meet current and future skill needs;
- promoting innovative technology in the field of providing career guidance;
- promoting innovative and cross-disciplinary approaches to STE(A)M teaching in education;
- promoting the use of self-reflection tools to support innovation and systemic change in education and training institutions;
