About the Author

In the 1980s and 1990s, Guy Roberts-Holmes worked as one of a handful of male nursery and reception teachers in inner London primary schools. Guy thoroughly enjoyed this challenging experience and was eager for more insight into the wider context of early years education, and so completed a Master's degree at King's College, London. Guy then worked in The Gambia, West Africa, for Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO) and as a lecturer at The University of The Gambia. Whilst in The Gambia, he carried out an ethnography of a nursery and primary school, leading to a PhD at the University of Nottingham. Guy is the Programme Leader for the internationally renowned MA Early Years Education at the University College London, Institute of Education. His research interests include early years policy sociology, assessment, and the professionalisation of the early years workforce. Guy Roberts-Holmes will be discussing his ideas in Doing Your Early Years Research Project, a SAGE Masterclass for early years students and practitioners in collaboration with Kathy Brodie.

Guy Roberts-Holmes' book has such a wonderful, easy to follow, step-by-step approach to breaking down what many students find a daunting prospect during their studies: managing, planning and carrying out their research project. This book is not only packed with great information, it is clear and well written, with great reflective points making it captivating. I loved the use of practical examples, checklists and web links throughout which is excellent as you feel like you have your own personal tutor on this journey, making this book an enjoyable yet stimulating read.

-- Samantha Coombes-McCalla
As a student attempting to conduct research and write academically, I would definitely recommend this book to any student in the early years field. The book provides an in-depth knowledge of concepts, methods, structure and research process. It also includes experiences of students which is a great help for beginners and provides actual guidance from the beginning till the end. -- Richa Barhat
