This paper focuses on one particular set of findings from the study. During Phase 1 of the study one group of young people identified in the database were those who commenced study in a school or further education college settings at 16+ who a year later at 17+ were in the non-participatory JWT or NEET categories. When the academic trajectories of these young people were identified these young people were found to have mean academic attainment and progress measures at age 11, 14 and 16 that were significantly lower than the rest of the young people in their initial destination category at 16+. Random samples of these young people were invited to attend one of two focus groups in their locality in order to discuss the issues highlighted above as part of strand 2 of the research. The focus group protocols particularly explored issues around the independent advice and guidance given to these young people at school to help them make their post-16 choices as well as the support and guidance given to them during and after their period of post 16 study.
