Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper outlines an ongoing research project that
employs a social capital lens to explore the external
educational influences on young people throughout
their primary and secondary education. It explores the
internal and external networks that pupils engage
within the school environment and beyond. This article
briefly provides an insight into the study, the
methodology employed, and provides some initial
findings based on the pilot of pupil questionnaire and
discussion responses. The findings raise questions
about the recognition and recording by schools
regarding pupil external activities.
