Chefs
Published: February 2017

Aim

Are young people and employers getting the most out of work experience?

The Department for Education have commissioned this study to find out what is effective and how work experience could be improved.

Our findings will be used to inform policy decisions about work experience in the future.

Our partners on this study are an independent research consultancy, SQW

Publications 

A report is due to publish in early 2017.

Methods

We're conducting interviews and group discussions: 

  • school and college leaders,
  • staff members,
  • students,
  • employers,
  • parents and carers
  • brokers who work with schools and employers to organise work experience.

We're also conducting an online survey with work experience leads based in schools and colleges.
