From July – September 2021, Dr Deirdre Hughes led a research project designed to capture the experiences of young people and what they think about careers support in schools/academies across England.
The research commissioned by ‘Launch Your Career’ involved:
* 3,615 pre-GCSE pupils from 52 schools/academies in 7 regions across England who responded to a national survey. This was distributed through schools and LinkedIn contacts, both online and in hard copy, including as part of 13 Summer School experiences.
*12 head teachers and careers leaders shared their views on England’s careers support system.
*39 employers from 14 key sectors in all regions, including nationwide employers, shared their views on young people’s ‘work-readiness’. Office for National Statistics (ONS) data and employer quotes from national skills shortages and skills gaps were also analysed.
“With great clarity, Dr Hughes brings to life – and to our tables, both the authority of the voice of our young people and a sense of how they believe in us that we will listen and act. Such confidence and ambition cannot be ignored. They honour us with their trust. We must match them with our action.” Dame Ruth Silver CBE.
