Education and Employers undertakes high quality robust research on education and employer engagement that informs education policy and practice. We also collaborate with other leading research institutions and ensure that research produced by academics around the world easily accessible to practitioners, employers and policy-makers.

Our six key research findings are that employer engagement in education helps:
  1. Broaden young peoples’ horizons and raise their aspirations
  2. Excite children about subjects, increasing motivation, confidence and attitude to learning
  3. Challenge gender and social stereotypes
  4. Improve academic attainment at GCSE
  5. Increase young people's earning potential
  6. Reduce the likelihood of young people becoming NEET (4 or more encounters with employers)
