Chinyere Magulike


EdD Student

Chinyere Magulike is pursuing her Doctorate in Education at the Department of Education Studies, University of Warwick. Her doctoral research focusses on examining the association between mental health (MH) in children and young people (CYP) at age 11 and their engagement in school and self-belief at age 14.

The first part of the study involves conducting a comprehensive literature review to explore various factors that impact the mental health of children and young people. The subsequent phase, uses quantitative analysis of data extracted from the Millennium Cohort Study datasets, specifically from sweeps 5 and 6, to investigate how mental health is associated with educational motivation, academic self-concept and future educational aspirations of children and young people at age 14.

In addition to her academic pursuits, Chinyere is an experienced Science teacher who specialises in teaching Biology to students across Key stages 3 to 5. She is an experienced pastoral leader and currently serves as the Team Leader for Academic Excellence in her professional environment. Her commitment to education improvement extends beyond the classroom, as she is an Evidence Lead in Education (ELE) with Kyra research school, where she actively contributes her expertise to support the professional development of educators within the East Midlands and across the country. Due to her passion in school improvement, she also dedicates her time in volunteering as a school governor in her local community.
