This graphic presents an overview of IES research projects spanning pre-16 education to post-16 choices, including apprenticeships, technical education, and higher education for young people and adults. 

We summarise knowledge and good practice, evaluate interventions, and advise policymakers, whilst exploring specific issues, including social equity and mobility. Our studies frequently involve gathering the views of pupils, learners and students, providers and employers, as well as comparing national and international approaches and their impact.
