Educational achievement at age 16, the end of statutory full-time education in England, is key to young people’s future educational, economic, social and health outcomes.
In this event, Steve Strand will analyse data from the Second Longitudinal Study of Young People in England (LSYPE2), which is the most up-to-date nationally representative dataset with comprehensive measures of all three dimensions of the achievement gap.
He will talk about the importance of looking at data intersectionally, since everyone has a race, sex and class background, meaning we don’t hold any of these characteristics in isolation.
This event will be particularly useful for researchers, policy makers and teachers.
Please note this is a hybrid event and can be joined in-person or online.
