Understanding what’s going on in the United Kingdom’s schools is tricky.
There are over 3.5 million school students in secondary education at more than 7,500
institutions, an order of magnitude larger than the university student population. To complicate matters, fashions and behavioural trends amongst school
students change as rapidly as our weather.
Last year, trendence UK, GTI Media and CASCAID came together to survey over 8,800 school leavers between Years 7-13 concerning their thoughts, ambitions and intentions regarding their future after school and college.
The result was the trendence School Leaver Study 2015 – a detailed report designed to help employers and universities engage school and college leavers more effectively.
