We are pleased to announce two awards under the Research Bursary Scheme. The first is to Joy Boyle of Fife College for her research on the impact of pre-entry guidance on student success rates in FE. The second is a joint award to two other Scottish members, Joy Clarke and Landé Wolsey. Joy and Landé are to investigate how adult guidance workers have acquired the skills necessary for the effective pursuit of their profession. We hope to carry full reports of these in News and Views in due course.
