Lucas is exploring responses to the questions: what does the world beyond school look like for young people and what types of education and training do they need to navigate it? His research thus focuses on: 1. The political, economic, cultural, social and technological dimensions of young people's participation - in particular their transitions to post-school life and the implications of these for educators, other service providers and policy makers. Current areas include youth transitions to employment and young people's experiences of citizenship. 2. How evidence can be used more effectively to support those working to improve the life-outcomes of children and young people. 3. Teacher professional learning and development in relation to the areas above. Lucas is currently an investigator with Mark Rickinson on The Q Project (Quality Use of Evidence Driving Quality Education) funded by The Paul Ramsay Foundation.
