House of Lords social mobility survey for young people

27 August 2015

The House of Lords Social Mobility Committee has an online survey it wants completed by 14 to 24 year-olds who did not, or will not, study A-levels (or Highers in Scotland) and go on to higher education. It is investigating the transition from school to work for young people, and the complex choices they face when considering career options.

The government, local authorities and partner organisations, including Prospects, support young people into higher education, NEETs and disadvantaged groups. However, the committee is interested in young people who fall between the two, who study less recognised qualifications (including BTEC, HNC, HND, NVQ and other diplomas). It wants to identify this middle group and what support they need to gain good employment.

The survey results will be used in a report to the government on the experiences of young people when they leave school, especially those who do not continue formal academic studies. Please share the survey with young people who suit its criteria. The survey is anonymous, takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and closes on Friday 11 September.
