The future of education, training and research in Shetland
RuthC posted a topic in Shetland NewsHello everyone, a survey site has been launched to gather the views of people in Shetland on developing opportunities for education, training and research. If you are: an employer or business owner,parent interested in your child's opportunities post-school,an adult considering learning or new skills,a former student of the colleges,then we'd like you to answer one of our surveys. If you are a young person at college or considering college soon, we will be creating other opportunities for you to have your say, and there will be community events too. But the quickest and easiest way for you to share your views is by visiting this website. Thanks for looking, we really appreciate your time and support.
Hey there! I am just entering the final year of my undergraduate degree at the University of Cambridge, and to complete this years grade I have chosen to enter a Dissertation project investigating the ways in which contemporary Shetland Island inhabitants construct their identity. Due to familial connections to close relatives in Northmavine and an academic concern for "rural" community politics, the development and contestation of identity on the island group is of immediate interest to me. I'm up here for about 2 weeks until the 20th of July, if you could donate a bit of time to be interviewed I'd be very grateful! I'll happily listen to anyone (those born/ raise elsewhere, but now live here more than welcome!), please drop me a message on here and I'll send over a copy of my research statement and a supporting letter from my supervisor. Generally the more replies the merrier, i'll be happy to arrange myself to your schedule. Thanks, Joseph
