Educational Pathways and Work Outcomes of Disabled Young People in England

Educational Pathways and Work Outcomes of Disabled Young People in England is a 36-month research project funded by the Leverhulme Trust (November 2020-November 2023).

The project aims to provide novel evidence surrounding educational transitions and labour market outcomes of disabled young people in England, and to investigate the whole range of mechanisms through which adolescent disability is translated into social disadvantage.

Their aim is to understand the factors that contribute to disability-related educational and occupational inequalities. As part of this, they are conducting interviews with disabled young people themselves, seeking to give a voice to a group so often overlooked in social research. They are currently looking for students with mobility impairments / autism / dyslexia who have just finished Year 11 at a mainstream school.

The research team has substantial training and experience in interviewing young people with different conditions. All interviews will be tailored to the individual needs and preferences of participants and their families. For each completed interview, participants will receive a £20 Love-to-Shop voucher.
