A Tale of Two Clusters: Supporting the Primary-Secondary Transition for Children with Social, Emotional and Behavioural Needs (Research Seminar)

The next TCELT Research Seminar will take place on Thursday 2nd May 2019, 3.30pm, in the University of Dundee's Carnelley Building, room 2.35.

In this seminar Dr Joan Mowat, Senior Lecturer in the School of Education at the University of Strathclyde, will present findings of a research and development study sponsored by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation  to evaluate a group-work approach to support children with social, emotional and behavioural needs (SEBN) across the Primary-Secondary transition. The study constituted three projects, Primary 6, Secondary 2 and P7-S1 (transition project), involving 63 support group pupils, and it is the last of these that the presentation focuses on. The study was implemented across six clusters of schools within two local authorities in Scotland. The objectives of the study were to ascertain the efficacy of the approach and the variables which impacted upon pupil outcomes and to explore issues around inclusion, transitions, pedagogy and leadership.

This seminar is in relation to the Educational and Life Transitions (E&LT) Research Theme of the School of Education and Social Work. This research theme aligns with The Centre for Transformative Change: Educational and Life Transitions (TCELT), the inter-disciplinary and cross-university research centre. The Centre is overseen by a Board of Directors with representatives from across the university and the Chair of the Board is Professor Divya Jindal-Snape.

All welcome.
