Evaluation of Career Colleges

CET funding supported an evaluation of Career Colleges by UCL/The Institute of Education which was completed in February 2020. Career Colleges, supported by the Career Colleges Trust, offer a choice in vocational education opportunities for 14-19-year-old young people. The research investigated their genesis, curriculum, stakeholder perception, employer engagement as well as a monitoring tool to drive improvement.

The research also enabled the identification of wider policy implications in relation to 14-19 education, early specialisation in a vocational field and other issues relating to further education, employer engagement, commercial education, skills development and social mobility. The research was co-funded with the Edge Foundation.

CET summarised key findings in its publication ‘Lessons From Employer Led Learning’. The full evaluation was published by The Edge Foundation (February 2020).
