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.

Abstract

The research literature on mentoring is diverse, draws mainly on studies from the US and spans youth, academic and workplace mentoring (Eby et al, 2010). School-based mentoring programmes targeted at socially disadvantaged young people vary from those employing peer mentors, older students and adults of different ages, and show modest positive impacts on outcomes such as truancy, misconduct and academic abilities (Rhodes et al., 2005). A meta-analysis of 73 US mentoring programmes (DuBois et al, 2011) suggested overall effectiveness showing positive outcomes for young people across social, emotional, academic and behavioural domains, and positioning mentoring as having equal effectiveness compared with other forms of youth intervention. Furthermore, the findings showed that young people not engaged in mentoring declined over time on similar outcomes.
