Evaluation of Career Colleges
This project funds an evaluation of Career Colleges scheduled to complete in April 2019. Career Colleges, supported by the Career Colleges Trust, offer a choice in vocational education opportunities for 14-19-year-old young people. The research will investigate their genesis, curriculum, stakeholder perception, employer engagement as well as a monitoring tool to drive improvement.
The research will also enable 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 is co-funded with the Edge Foundation.
