We are delighted to announce that due to the quality of this year’s applications we have been able to award an additional career development award. 

There are three recipients of this years career development award:

  • Anna Mariguddi (Edge Hill University) 
  • Cherry Zin Oo (Yangon University of Education)
  • Kathryn Spicksley (University of Worcester) 

The Fellowship is a flexible package of benefits intended to support ECRs in the first three years following completion of their doctorate, focusing in particular on those who are insecurely and precariously employed.

We are also able to announce the winner of the BERA 2021 Undergraduate Award. This award is for recent graduates who have completed their undergraduate degrees in a field related to educational research.

  • Sze Wa Ho – The effects of Science-related Community-based Experiential Learning on pre-service teachers’ discipline-based teaching in schools

The judges also felt that an additional application was suitable for being awarded the highly commended award.

  • Thabisile Ncube – A critical examination of the experiences BAME students encounter at a university in the North west of England: A case study

We would like to thank all of those who applied for both of these opportunities, we were pleased with both the number and the quality of applications.
