Launched on 29th March 2021, the annual Youth Voice Census collates fact and feeling from young people across the UK as to their education, opportunities and prospects.
This year’s census will be doubly important as we learn about the additional barriers the pandemic has created, how young people of all backgrounds have navigated the last year and what opportunities they will be searching out as we rebuild from the effects of Covid-19.
“We are delighted to be sponsoring the Youth Voice Census 2021. Our young people have been hit massively by the repercussions of the past 12 months,” said Anna Morrison, director Amazing Apprenticeships. “We need to learn from their journey in navigating the world of apprenticeships, traineeships, higher education, work placements and career opportunities over this time in order to help shape future opportunities”
The census is open to all young people aged 14-24 across the UK to complete who have navigated the move, or are in the process of transitioning, from school to study, apprenticeship, training or work. The results will be used to affect decision-makers within employers, government and key organisations.
“Employers are always keen to work with us on the different ways they can engage with young people and connect them with apprenticeship and work opportunities. The first step is to listen and understand their response. The Youth Voice Census gives us the perfect opportunity to do exactly that.”
Last year’s Census recorded up to 4000 responses from a wide range of young people from differing backgrounds across the UK.
If you or someone you know has recently transitioned from school to their next steps and are aged between 14-24, we encourage you to make your voice heard here.
