A message from Youth Employment UK CEO Laura-Jane Rawlings

It could not have been a bigger year for young people. A year of challenge, change and missed opportunities. We need to allow young people to share their experiences and have their say on what works for them. It helps us all to better understand the improvements that need to be made.

Our annual Youth Voice Census is the most important piece of work we do. It allows young people to share their voice on the experiences and services available to them throughout education and their next steps. Since its pilot in 2018, over 6,000 young people have told us their story, enabling us to build a picture of how young people are navigating the transition from education to employment. We have been able to share what is working and what improvements need to be made with partners across the sector and with UK Government policy makers.
