Faculty structures under the spotlight as University of Aberdeen researchers seek the views of teachers

Press/Media: Other


"The majority of Scottish secondary schools have moved to faculties, or have initiated the change to this structure. It is important that research such as this is ongoing to monitor the effectiveness of this change while the memory of the discrete subject model still persists."

So concluded a paper that one of us co-authored with Cherie Anderson in 2010 (see this link). Now, 11 years later, we are working on a sequel. Our research hopes to provide a way in which we can access the collective memory of Scottish secondary schools to ascertain the nature, extent and impact of "facultisation" on multiple areas such as workload, the curriculum, subject specialism, interdisciplinarity, wellbeing, behaviour management, transitions, subject networking and career progression
