It is common for the decision on a young person’s new placement to remain undecided until the very end of their last school year, and in some cases, after they had finished and left school (A-PPGA 2009).

  • ‘For those leaving care, boarding or residential college, future independent adult life is a daunting unknown’ (OFSTED 2012 p 7)
plan a

Qualitative case study

Plan A
plan b

Qualitative case study

  • Interview parents & carers
  • Exploring in depth a process, bounded by time and activity, collecting detailed information (Stake 1995), and ‘investigating a contemporary phenomenon within its real-life context’ (Yin 2003 p 13).
  • Literature review
Plan B
plan b1

Literature review summary:

  • The organisation of transition was poor
  • Most parents experienced high levels of stress
Plan B

Semi-structured interviews

  • Interview schedule – a linear approach (Cohen et al 2000)
  • First interview a pilot
  • Recorded, transcribed, coded
  • Thematic approach (Braun & Clark (2006)

After the interviews – interviewee follow-up

  • Two sets of findings
  • First: the facts
  • Reasons for choice of school, what was the process of getting your child in like, did they make progress
  • Second, four main interpretive themes
what s next

Parental stress a key theme, so…

  • Use the Stress Index for Parenting Adolescents, an off-shoot of the Parenting Stress Index
  • A future study on a longitudinal basis
  • Follow a cohort through
  • Include children and parents
