NSEE work with Scotland's largest Regional Improvement Collaborative
The Network for Social and Educational Equity (NSEE) at the Robert Owen Centre for Educational Change works collaboratively with the West Partnership (WP) Regional Improvement Collaborative (RIC), to promote more equitable education systems, experiences and outcomes through research, for children and young people across the west of Scotland.
This is delivered by the ROC Team working at strategic and operational levels of the Partnership:
Two professors from the University of Glasgow provide expert strategic advice to the West Partnership Board on the West`s Learning System and act as `critical friends` to the Directors – Chris Chapman and Graham Donaldson.
Two NSEE senior researchers support and facilitate groups and networks across the WP to develop collaborative practitioner inquiry approaches that inform practice and improve outcomes for children and young people across the west of Scotland – Kevin Lowden and Stuart Hall.
The West`s Research and Knowledge Exchange Officer, based at the Robert Owen Centre, has a focus on process and impact evaluation and research to understand the difference the WP is making regarding its strategic aims, including the value it adds to the local authorities, in addition to mobilising knowledge across the Partnership – Irene Bell.
