Education to employment: the role of wellbeing

The transition from full-time education into employment can be a testing time for many young people. Helping young people find employment has been a key policy objective for many years, and indeed the percentage of young people not in education, employment or training (NEETs) is now part of the United Nations SDG framework.

Using five years of longitudinal data from the UK Understanding Society Survey, our research looks at what impact wellbeing has on the probablity of school-leavers finding employment, and how that compares with other factors.

What else affects school leavers’ chances?
