#003 – CfEY LIVE: Transitions in the era of levelling up

31st May 2022

This episode of The Youth and Education Podcast is the third in our new series, ‘CfEY LIVE’, where members of the team discuss the research we are currently working on with key stakeholders, including practitioners from the sector and young people.

CfEY’s Vanessa Joshua is joined by colleague Billy Huband-Thompson, and Hannah Asquith, CEO of Youth Concern, an independent charity that supports vulnerable 13-25 year olds across Aylesbury Vale in Buckinghamshire.

CfEY has worked with Youth Concern during our research for The Rothschild Foundation exploring the challenges and opportunities that 16-25 year-olds in Bucks face as they transition to adulthood.

In this episode Vanessa, Hannah and Billy discuss:

  • The work Youth Concern is doing across Aylesbury Vale
  • The challenges young people face during transitions and how organisations such as Youth Concern can offer support through a ‘one-stop shop’
  • Why high-quality work experience is important and the challenges that young people face in securing it
  • Their hopes for the support available to young people in the era of ‘levelling-up’
