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.

Last Thursday, Sanna and Laura were invited to attend an event held by The Data Lab, one of the other seven innovation centres. The event was a very stimulating discussion surrounding the future of apprenticeships in data science. Skills development Scotland gave an overview of the different levels of the apprenticeships that will be available, ranging from SQF level 6 through to potentially an SQF level 11, equivalent to an MSc.
