Abstract

This study explored the experiences and understanding of closed-circuit television among pupils and staff in three secondary schools in the Northwest of England. This case explores the research methodology which utilised semi-structured interviews, focus groups and observation. It focuses in particular on the difficulties of securing access to research sites and participants, in this case schools and young people, and the impact that this can have on research findings.

Additional Information : SAGE Research Methods Cases (SRM-C) was launched in June 2014 to complement SAGE Research Methods (SRM). SAGE Research Methods Cases is a collection of hundreds of case studies of real social research, specially commissioned and designed to support teaching and learning in research methods. Methodological concepts can often appear rather abstract, particularly to students. By demonstrating how methods have been used in actual projects, the case studies complement theoretical understanding by exploring the difficulties, nuances and real-life decisions that researchers face. The cases have been carefully commissioned to match course content across the full range of social science disciplines and also to meet the needs of researchers internationally. Cases can be searched by method, discipline, or academic level. Learning objectives and discussion questions are also available for each case to support teaching and learning.
