From the Paper:

"There are a number of interviewing techniques which may be used ranging from the completely informal through to the fully structured interview with the semi-structured interview providing a middling solution. In the first instance the unstructured interview may provide the most flexible of the techniques and allows the researcher to follow emerging themes. However there is the possibility that without any structure the interview may end without providing any real value for the researcher leaving many key questions unanswered. On the other hand the fully structured interview may be seen a proving the opposite in that the researcher may gain answers to all of the questions which they set out to answer but key opportunities to investigate areas to a more in depth level or areas which the researcher had not previously considered may be missed. As such it is proposed that the researcher will use a hybrid method in the form of a semi structured interview, in preparation the researcher will identify a number of themes to talk around during the interview rather than a formal list of questions. As such this will allow the researcher to gain the relevant information required whilst still giving the interviewee the opportunity to elaborate on areas of personal experience or to talk about areas which the researcher had not previously considered."
