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

Previous Commentaries have stated that Scottish industrial output has probably been outperforming that of the UK throughout 1990. The index of production and construction for the first three months of the year underlines this to a remarkable degree, recording a rise of 4.6% in a single quarter and overtaking the UK index for the first time for many years. This single quarter's performance is even more marked within the manufacturing sub-section of the index, which recorded a 5.6% rise in the three months to March. This now ascribes to Scottish manufacturing an annual rise of 6.6%, more than double that of the UK as a whole (3.0%).
