04 Apr Youth Employment UK launch their annual Youth Census Survey
Youth Voice Census 2022
Each year our friends at Youth Employment UK run a ‘Youth Voice Census’ which is an online survey targeted at 11-30 year old’s across the UK. 1000s of young people take part and have their say on training, careers and opportunities for development across the board.
Youth Employment UK is an independent not for profit social enterprise founded in 2012 to tackle youth employment.
The survey gives young people the chance to share how they feel about a number of issues related to education, employment, training, work and where they live.
The survey itself is anonymous and respects privacy. The results are shared widely with employers, the media and government and aim to provide a basis for better supporting young people in the UK. The findings help to create a backbone of big data evidence for improving policy and youth support in the UK.
Speaking of the Youth Voice Census, Laura-Jane Rawlings, CEO Youth Employment UK said:
“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, nearly 10,000 young people have told us their story, enabling us to build a picture of how young people are feeling about where they are right now, what is working for them and what is not.
We have been able to share what is working and what improvements need to be made, together with partners across the sector and with UK Government policy makers.
This year we want to reach more young people than ever – support us by adding your voice.”
