Training Workshops

On-line, public and bespoke training workshops for Quirkos and qualitative analysis.


Join one of our interactive training sessions

We run a variety of workshops tailored for different sectors and levels of experience in qualitative research.

These include one-day workshops designed to give you an overview into the whole qualitative research process. They cover setting questions, choosing methods, interviewing and focus group tips, as well as coding and analysis using Quirkos.

Other sessions target experienced qualitative researchers, demonstrating how to use Quirkos to manage your data, run detailed queries and produce useful reports.

Contact us to book a one hour, half day or full day workshop for your team or organisation. We can also arrange live-streaming, interactive virtual workshops, through Skype, Webex or Google Hangouts.

If you would rather teach or explore in your own time, you can watch recorded videos of any of our previous workshop sessions at our Youtube channel.

Learning qualitative analysis with Quirkos - London Workshop (20 Bedford Way, UCL)

Monday 20th November 2017,
11:00 am
(London / GMT)

A free training session for our simple to use qualitative research software, Quirkos. We will take you through the basics of qualitative analysis, and how CAQDAS software can help manage your research and help you focus on analysis. We will cover bringing your text data into the project, creating a coding framework and tagging your data, describing and sorting your sources and exploring and supported coded data. No previous experience with qualitative software or analysis is required.

We will provide example data to use in the workshop, but feel free to bring your own data. This is a 'bring a laptop' workshop, and it would help if you can download and install Quirkos before the session. However we will have USB sticks with the software available, and a few laptops to borrow if reserved in advance.

The session runs at the UCL Institute of Education building, near Russell Square tube station in central London. The workshop is free, but please book a place by emailing
