Project Details

A three-year doctoral studentship is available for candidates who wish to explore school-based mentoring of looked after children in Glasgow. It is one of two studentships in collaboration with the University’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Science (HaSS) and MCR Pathways (the other studentship is listed on the HaSS website).  The study has two parts.  Part (i) will involve the assessment of the social benefits which flow from such mentoring programmes, focussing particularly on methodologies for modelling and quantifying the avoided cost of failure and social return on investment associated with such programmes.  Part (ii) will involve studying the management challenges associated with assuring the sustainable growth and embedding of such programmes in communities throughout Scotland.  The student will work closely with staff at MCR Pathways to define a detailed work programme and the research will feed into MCR Pathways’ planning and the development of a business case for future expansion.

The studentship will be based in the Department of Management Science, Strathclyde Business School, under the supervision of Prof Alec Morton  (Management Science) and Dr Graham Connelly (School of Social Work and Social Policy). The student will complete their PhD as a member of the Business School – more details of course requirements and regulations can be found here.
