Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

Abstract

SWIIS Fostercare Scotland commissioned researchers from the University of Strathclyde to conduct an independent evaluation of the agency's support arrangements in relation to the education of children and young people placed with their foster carers. SWIIS intends to use the results of the evaluation to guide the development of the service and to provide evidence of quality assurance for clients. The fieldwork upon which the report is based was conducted between February and June 2009.
