Our research focuses on which areas in England need the greatest support as well as what works in careers and enterprise provision. This combined focus helps us concentrate our resource where it is needed most and on programmes that will have the greatest impact in preparing young people for the workplace.

We bring together sector-leading insights and carry out our own research to contribute to a growing evidence base.

Our research focuses on 4 areas:

  1. Shaping the debate
    ​We explore the key issues and assumptions that underpin discussions about careers and enterprise work.
