Educational Policy & Strategy
The thoughtful development of educational policy and strategy is paramount to the way in which we do things as a sector. As such it is important to develop policies and strategies that reflect and address the issues we face as a sector, but that are also perceptive of the issues we may come to face in time. Alexander therefore believes that educational policy and strategy should be developed to allow the sector and those who participate in it to be resilient to the challenges of the societal and political landscape within which Education is situated.
Resilience in Education Populations
Having worked within services that seek to support students for most of his career, Alexander has started to develop interests in exploring the nature of resilience within educational settings. Particular interests focus on the ways in which students cope with the various crises they face both at an academic and personal level throughout the course of their studies, as well as examining methods through which we can promote resilient behaviours in order to prevent students arriving at crisis point.
