The 9th annual Youth Index from the Prince’s Trust shows young people’s concerns about poor job prospects, limited improvement opportunities and low well-being.

The Careers and Enterprise company have produced a report (PDF) to illustrate how careers websites can be used as part of a broader careers education provision to impact the decisions made by young people transitioning from education to the world of work.

The AGCAS Graduate Labour Market Survey Report 2017 (PDF) shows the increasingly important role of higher education careers services in relation to social mobility. Nearly three quarters of careers services are now running targeted initiatives for widening participation students. Over two thirds of heads observed an increase in students’ engagement with these initiatives. Data driven, evidence-based approaches are helping universities to better understand their students’ career readiness and to target resources and activities accordingly. This can help all students and be particularly useful in enhancing engagement with and provision for disadvantaged groups.
