Evolving schooling structures: the contribution of small-scale studies

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

11:00-15:30 on Thursday 7th June in Birmingham
(Meeting postponed from 1 March)

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 will include presentations from a number of researchers undertaking such studies and provides the opportunity for those attending 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.

Those who registered for the original date and wish to attend this rescheduled meeting should register again.

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

Please note, this event is now fully booked.
