Abstract

The research reported here was commissioned in 2003 by the UK’s Secretary of State for Education and Skills to consider the influence of the school on the decision to participate in learning on completion of compulsory schooling. A national sample of twenty-four schools across the UK participated in this study. This included focus group interviews with 1152 students aged fourteen and fifteen; interviews with head teachers; heads of year and careers advisors in each of the twenty-four schools and parental questionnaires for each student interviewed. The research has evaluated a number of different models that support the students’ post-school decision-making. This paper considers the findings of the project in terms of the emergent models that illuminate the impact on the schools of choice processes. The strategic orientation of schools was found to influence the choice process for young people at the end of their compulsory schooling
