The quality of work on offer to young people and how it supports the building blocks for a healthy life

The aim of this research is to investigate how early experiences of the workplace shape young people’s life at work and later working life – and therefore their long term health.

IES will explore the nature of work available to 18-24 year olds and the trends in the sectors they work in. They will identify what would “good” look like in terms of good quality entry level work, the barriers for achieving this and finally suggest the asks of policy and practice (national and local) to deliver the support required.
