Picture of sea vessel plough through rough maritime conditions

Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

In Scotland the transition between primary school and secondary school has traditionally been a major landmark in a child’s life. Between 11 and 12 years of age the majority of Scottish children experience this transition which requires a physical move to a new school environment where new people, new expectations and new practices all have to be negotiated. The move from primary to secondary school has also meant a challenge for educators who have debated a range of issues consistently across a number of generations. The primary-secondary transition might be considered to be the missing jigsaw piece in the school curriculum. This chapter looks at this key stage in a learner’s education as both a social transition and an academic transition and will highlight recurring issues.
