[Research Report Launch Conference] Is the child’s and young person’s view shaping decisions on SEND/ASN provision in England and Scotland? (6 June 2019)

A research report launch conference of our ESRC-funded project "Autonomy, Rights and Children with Special Educational Needs" organised by the University of Manchester.

[SEMINAR] Transforming children’s rights? Dilemmas, challenges and implementation (1 May 2019)

Across the four nations of the UK, there have been different rates of progress in terms of incorporating aspects of the UNCRC into domestic law. Holding this seminar in Scotland is timely, with the Scottish Government’s promise to incorporate the principles of CRC into domestic law, a three year awareness raising programme for children’s rights, and an emerging children and young people’s participation framework. It is thus timely to consider where we are now – and where we want to be – learning from across the UK and beyond.

[ENLIVEN dissemination] Post-School Education and Training for Young People on the Social Margins: Evidence from Scotland (28 Feb 2019)

At this event we report on our own research in Scotland. We are focusing on the experiences and outcomes of young people in two skills development programmes, one delivered by a college and one by a local council.
