How can students develop their social capital?
What is the best way to introduced social capital into schools?
How important is social capital for young people?
I am dedicated to researching the impact of social capital as well as the ways to best educated young people. In 2022 I completed a research project funded by Warwick University as part of the Undergraduate Research Support Scheme. This pilot study explored the factors that affect access to social capital and how students are able to use their networks.
I am now expanding the study to include schools across England to evaluate the role of social capital and the best way to support students. I am looking at the information students have access to and evaluating their current networks.
