Dr. David Regis - Research Manager

 

David Regis is the Research Manager at SHEU and is your first point of contact for all enquiries about our reports and research services.

Please email David or contact by telephone on 01392 667272.

David first came to SHEU in 1986, after spending some years teaching biology, to study for a research degree - 'Self-concept and conformity in theories of health education', 1990, University of Exeter. (Ph.D).

An evaluation of the Schools Health Education Unit, shortly after his arrival, reported that "a student has attached himself to the Unit", which made him feel like a barnacle. His attachment to SHEU is clearly still strong, and he currently holds the post of Research Manager.

David has responsibility for aggregating the data that SHEU holds, for keeping the unruly herd of computers that we own in order, and is increasingly in demand by the media for comments about SHEU's findings, although he wishes the media were more positive in their comments about young people.

Please could our College be part of the SHEU survey this academic year? We did it in 2016 and 2017 and found it incredibly informative and it helped us shape our PSHE provision.

Assistant Principal

"One year (following the SHEU survey) responses from our Year 4 cohort caused us concern, so we put in place a number of team building, motivational projects. We then assessed their effectiveness by requesting the SHEU questionnaires for these pupils as Year 5's."
