External provision of the school curriculum: Local needs to global networks in Health and Physical Education (2014–2017)

Abstract:
This project will examine the factors that influence the appeal of and opportunities for external providers of health work (including HPE curricula) in schools at a local, national and international level. It will generate original, global data regarding: the influence of system networks on the creation of health issues; international trends for the external provision of health work products and services to schools; and the impact of networked health issues and providers on schooling. Findings will inform: policies related to outsourcing practices across the curriculum; expectations for teachers' work; and more broadly, control of young people's health and the future of schooling.
