Evolving schooling structures: the contribution of small-scale studies

The next meeting of the Structural Reform Research Interest Group (RIG) will take place:

Date: Thursday 1st March 2018
Venue: Birmingham
Time: 11:00 - 15:30

The school system in England continues to evolve. Multi-academy trusts are now clearly the direction of travel, but other groupings such as teaching school alliances remain significant and many schools, especially in the primary sector, continue to resist academisation.  Alongside these school-level developments the roles of Regional School Commissioners, local authorities and other actors continue to evolve. This changing landscape is a fertile field for research and is the subject of a growing number of small-scale studies, both by research students and academic staff. This one-day workshop provides the opportunity for those undertaking such studies to share their work and to explore together the potential of such studies to add to our understanding of a very complex policy environment. The day will, as is normal at RIG events, be informal and supportive, and it is hoped that one outcome of this event will be the development of a network of researchers. If you are interested in contributing to this day, please contact Tim Simkins with brief details of your work – t.j.simkins@shu.ac.uk

Registration for this event is free and full venue details will be provided to registered delegates in the form of joining instructions.
