We are pleased to announce that ScotCen Social Research have been commissioned to undertake another round of face to face interviews with our ‘Birth Cohort 1’. These interviews will begin in early 2017, when the young people are in their first year of secondary school.
To help identify the topics for this S1 ‘sweep’ of data collection, the Scottish Government are hosting a questionnaire development workshop on the morning of Monday 11th April at Victoria Quay in Edinburgh. This will also be an opportunity consider topics for a possible sweep in S3 that would begin in 2019 and to hear about long-term strategic plans for the study.
Places at the event will be limited. Our priority is to involve those who would like to make an active contribution to the design of the study. To register your interest in attending please e-mail David Dey at David.Dey@gov.scot under the title ‘GUS questionnaire workshop’. Please include a sentence about how you envisage using GUS data from these future sweeps and which organisation or interest you’ll be representing. The closing date for registering an interest is Friday 26th February. Places will be confirmed by Friday 11th March.
