Passports to Progress: How do vocational qualifications help young people in building their careers?

At this panel event we launched new research on vocational qualifications at Key Stages 4 and 5, looking at who does these, and how that varies across types of school or parts of the country.

Listen to a podcast of the event:

We have also interviewed a range of school leaders on what they think of vocational qualifications and carried out opinion research with the parents of young people facing course choices.

This research is supported by Pearson Education and forms part of the work programme for the SMF’s Commission on Inequality in Education.
