New report: The Higher Education Journey of Young London Residents
A warm welcome to the seventh report in a series providing analysis and insight into the higher education journey of young London residents as they progress from 16-18 institutions into higher education and beyond. Read the report now on the London Councils website.
As with its predecessors, this report explores and discusses not only various aspects of achievement in HE but also provides a commentary on graduate employment in the context of higher education and employment opportunities in London.
Our report is launched amidst the impact of Covid-19 and the consequences of lockdown. This year, young people’s journey to HE have been a difficult one. Alongside personal tragedies, the effects of school closures, unique assessment arrangements, deferred university starts, and the weight of the exceptional circumstances we are living through will remain with us for some time. Even though the world in which we are publishing this report is truly different, we continued the job we started seven years ago so that the evidence this report presents can contribute, in a small way, to the vital work of recovery and renewal.
