Cognition Consulting Appoints Research Consultant Dr David Stuart

NEW ZEALAND, Thursday, 5 October 2006: Cognition Consulting, a new local entity focused largely on international educational projects has recently appointed a new research consultant, Dr David Stuart, to meet growing business demand in educational research and evaluation.

Dr Stuart joins the Cognition team from the Ministry of Education, where he has worked in both schooling improvement and research divisions. His most recent role has been as a Senior Research Analyst in the Research and Evaluation Team at the Ministry. Dr Stuart's thesis investigated school business relationships in New Zealand schools.

Des Hammond, Chairman of Cognition Consulting, says Dr Stuart is a great addition to the Wellington team, given his considerable experience in designing and managing complex national research and evaluation programmes for the Ministry of Education.

"This appointment will add further depth to the already strong calibre of researchers at Cognition Consulting, enabling us to provide even more insight on how to reform education and schooling systems both here and internationally," he adds.

Dr Stuart joined Cognition Consulting's Wellington team on 25 September 2006.
