In our latest research seminar from the ‘What Works’ series, Jon Boys, senior researcher at The Careers & Enterprise Company, will talk about how we direct resources where they are needed most by looking at how geography interacts with education and labour market outcomes.
Bart Shaw from education ‘think and action tank’ LKMco, will discuss the findings from two recent reports written for the Social Mobility Commission. He will question whether the assumed link between educational success and labour market success holds true for different social groups.
We are continually working to understand more about how young people transition from education into employment and how this can be supported. As part of this, we carry out research into which areas are in greatest need of careers and enterprise activities and share this with others to encourage debate and sharing of knowledge around this important topic.
The research presentations will be followed by questions from the audience and discussion, finishing with time for networking.
