The central component of this event is a pre-recorded webinar, followed by a live Q&A session. We welcome questions in both Welsh and English. The recording and Q&A will be available online following the event. Additional questions will also be answered on social media.
This webinar will introduce the WISERD Education Multi-Cohort Study, a longitudinal study of the changing perceptions of secondary school pupils over the last 10 years, and will provide an insight into how we work with schools and policy makers.
The primary focus will be to celebrate the voice of pupils, and share their changing views on issues of interest to policymakers and professionals, including:
- How school experience were impacted by the pandemic.
- Perception of school as the Curriculum for Wales continues to be rolled out.
- Pupil engagement are issues including politics, wellbeing and equality
- Ambitions and aspirations for future work, study and family life.

This event will benefit teachers, school governors, education professionals and policymakers especially, as attendees will gain an insight into the issues affecting pupils. Attendees will find out how the WMCS brings together responses on multiple topics to build a picture of pupils’ lives, and teachers will also learn how their school can become involved in the project going forward.
