SE and HIME Placement on Schools Focussed Research

  • Kennedy, Aileen, (Principal Investigator)

Project: Research

Description

"This six month placement is split between the Scottish Government Education Analytical Services Unit and Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education. The aim of the placement is to enhance knowledge exchange between research communities and the host organisations, and to further existing links between these partners, with a particular focus on schools research.

One of the key aims of the placement is to identify relevant research from the Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP) and the Applied Educational Research Scheme (AERS) and to find ways of making this accessible to policy makers through the production of accessible summaries and the organisation of seminars.

Another key objective of the placement is to contribute to the research culture in both organisations and to gain a better insight into their work with a view to better understanding how academics and policy makers can work together to produce, disseminate and use research. Outcomes from the placement will be both substantive, in terms of working papers and academic articles, and experiential."
