About our Research
We believe that young people should be given the best support available to make informed choices about their education and employment decisions.
To make sure this happens, we carry out research to understand best practice in careers and enterprise provision, sharing evidence of what works and identifying gaps where more career support is needed for young people across England.
With our research we work to:
- Track the impact of our own work and the activities across the country that we support, learning quickly and upscaling successful careers and enterprise provision where we find it
- Share the best available evidence in practical ways that help both employers and schools and colleges to prioritise activity and maximise impact
- Seek to understand how young people make decisions and what can be done to support them most effectively as part of our work to support more informed choices about their futures
- Support the on-going development of new research to understand 'what works', 'how' and 'why' in careers and enterprise provision
