Title of study:  The role of teacher support in promoting resilience amongst ‘at-risk’ young people

My doctoral study investigates the extent to which teacher support can mitigate the impact of identifiable risk factors to promote resilience for ‘at-risk’ students. Looking particularly at the period of transition at the end of compulsory education, I employ a mixed methods approach to explore both young people’s perceptions of support and to understand the importance of student-teacher relations from the perspective of educational professionals
