The transition from compulsory education to work is becoming increasingly complex. As a result of previous work alongside the Welsh Government’s Careers Wales careers guidance service, there is a detailed understanding of the provision of careers advice and guidance in school. However, little is known about the engagement of pupils in post compulsory education and training.  This project will look to fill that evidence gap by asking questions such as:

  • Who receives careers guidance during Key Stage 5?
  • What is the nature of this provision and how does it vary between those in further education, those in sixth form settings and those taking academic versus vocational qualifications?
