Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

Abstract

Clydebank Women's aid provides temporary accommodation and a safe place for women and their children to stay, where the women have suffered abuse (mental, physical or sexual) in their home or within a relationship with a partner or family. Support is available on a daily basis and an emergency on-call is available at evenings and weekends. Further support and information is provided through the Out Reach Service and Rolling Programme to women in the community.
