CDN Launch Trauma-Informed College Programme

CDN are delighted to launch the ambitious new Trauma-Informed College Programme, aimed at facilitating the creation of a trauma-informed culture in every college in Scotland.

The programme will utilise learning from CDN’s recent Pathways from Poverty Research and the expertise of colleagues and partners across the sector to provide training, resources and interventions that will help colleges tackle the challenges faced by learners and their communities in accessing and sustaining their participation in education.

At the heart of the programme is an understanding that colleges are already leading the way in tackling educational disadvantage in our communities and in supporting all learners, including those who have lived experience of poverty and trauma, to succeed. The programme aims to build on existing good practice and to provide a range of support to colleges and college leaders to consider what further steps they need to take to develop and embed a truly trauma-informed culture throughout their organisation.

Call for Abstracts and Articles for Social Inclusion Journal

The Role of Contexts in the Educational and Employment Transitions and Pathways of Young People

Deadline for Abstracts: 15 March 2024

Deadline for Articles: 31 October 2024


Academic Editors: Alexandra Wicht (Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training / University of Siegen), Oliver Winkler (Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg), Mona Granato (Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training), and Alexandra Nonnenmacher (University of Siegen)

Social Inclusion, peer-reviewed journal indexed in the Social Sciences Citation Index (Web of Science; Impact Factor: 1.5) and Scopus (CiteScore: 3.0), welcomes new and exciting research papers for its upcoming issue “The Role of Contexts in the Educational and Employment Transitions and Pathways of Young People,” edited by Alexandra Wicht, Oliver Winkler, Mona Granato, and Alexandra Nonnenmacher.

The main theme of the thematic issue is the importance of contextual characteristics for the transition and pathways of adolescents and young adults to education and employment, and thus for the role of context in the reproduction of social inequalities at career entry. Contextual characteristics can be manifold and relevant at different levels, e.g., national, spatial, organizational, institutional, or social, and their influence can be channeled through different social processes. Our aim is to bring together researchers from different disciplines and research areas to study contextual social processes and their consequences for transitions and pathways into and through education and employment.

The editors invite (interdisciplinary) qualitative and quantitative empirical contributions focusing on the role of spatial (e.g., countries, regions, infrastructure), organizational (e.g., companies, associations), or institutional (e.g., schools, education systems, policies) contexts, or social groups and networks (e.g., family, peers) for one or more of the following themes:

  • Educational transitions
  • School-to-work transitions
  • Inclusion and integration in the education and employment system
  • Transitions and pathways at career entry
  • Social positioning in the labor market

Abstracts welcome by 15 March 2024.
