Research Access in Schools

Get in touch

Within Education, there is a policy of evaluating all requests for research access made to the department or any section of it.

Anyone wishing access should complete the Research in Schools Application Form.

Note to applicants: When filling out the Research in Schools Application Form please save the document onto your PC before completing any information to ensure no data is lost.

Please also read Appendix 1 - Education Services Research Evaluation Criteria for further information and guidance on the process.

This process is intended to co-ordinate and organise research proposed or being carried out within Education. This will also avoid any excessive demands on staff resources and ensure the protection of client confidentiality.

If your research involves pupils please refer to the booklet Get Your Facts Right (A Guide to Social Research) which has been produced by pupils and will provide further guidance on how to approach research in Glasgow City Council Establishments. 

Education Services Research Group (ESRG)

The ESRG has been established to screen external research proposals and will meet on the dates noted below to consider applications for research access.

Once the meeting has taken place applicants will be notified accordingly whether their application for research access has been approved or refused. Please refer to Appendix 1 for further information.

Applicants should note the submission deadline dates for applications. Proposals submitted after the deadline will not be considered until the next scheduled meeting of the research group.
