- The transition from primary to secondary school is a crucial time in a young person’s education. Some charities do focus on periods of transition but there is limited discussion about the move to secondary school, and the years S1 to S2.
- Finding out what matters to young people and helping them design new programmes allows them to have a say in their future which research suggests makes more effective services. The participants can affirm how they will proceed and eventually, how they have benefited.
- Scotland needs more services focused on positive transitions during school. The introduction of a new project could not only verify current knowledge surrounding the subject, but also contribute to the research.
