The role of careers guidance in supporting participation in higher education

Status: Closed

This research will utilise administrative records supplied by Careers Wales to examine the receipt of careers guidance received by children in Welsh schools and how this is influenced by pupils’ demographic and academic characteristics.

Key questions

This project aims to examine whether careers guidance is received by those who are most in need of support and whether the receipt of careers guidance can be demonstrated to be associated with increased rates of progression, attainment and retention in post-compulsory education.
