We are pleased to announce the launch of the fifth annual report of ‘The Higher Education Journey of Young Londoners’.

We will be holding a launch event for:

  • local authority 14 to 19, education and research officers
  • Higher Education Institutions and representative bodies
  • Further Education Institutions delivering HE
  • Policy makers

London Councils with Continuum, University of East London and the London Borough of Newham have been collaborating for the past five years to examine the higher education journey of young London residents. The launch of this fifth annual research report will highlight changes in participation, attainment and progression to the London labour market at London and local authority level.

This report, and its predecessors, provide a developing picture of the different higher education journeys of young Londoners. The research aims to not only provide a commentary on such journeys, but also to evidence the value of higher education to young people in London in terms of their early graduate employment six months after completing their higher education studies.

This year, the report focuses on the impact of higher education on social mobility.

Local authority colleagues will receive a copy of their individual borough report at the launch event.

The programme for the morning can be found under related documents.  PIease note that registration is now closed but should you wish to join a waiting list, please email [email protected]
