Looking for an activity to do with your students during careers week?

Trendence School Leaver Survey

The trendence School Leaver survey is an annual piece of research into students’ views on career and university options after leaving school/college. We use the research to create reports for schools and employers to let them what students want to do in the future, and to create The UK's 100 Most Popular Employers for School Leavers publication.

If you are looking for an activity to do with your students during National Careers Week, then we have just the thing for you! The trendence school / college leaver survey asks students about their future career aspirations, whether they are looking to go onto university or start an apprenticeship / school leaver programme.

The survey, which takes around 15-20 minutes to complete, allows the students to consider their future options and also what is driving them to make these key decisions.

A tangible outcome for your school/college

Through taking part in the research your school / college will receive a bespoke report on the responses of your students. This report will provide you a range of information to help support your careers provision, such as:

  • The percentage of your students planning to straight into work, or go onto university.
  • What careers sectors the students have most interest in.
  • How they have found out about careers information and who they turn to for advice about their next steps.
  • Specific employers they would like to work for, or universities they would like to attend.
  • Plus much more.

To qualify for the report, we ask that at least 50 students from your school / college take part in the survey. There is no cost involved at all; we are simply looking to get as many students as possible to take part in the research.

How take part

To take part all you need to do is direct students to the survey and encourage them to complete it: https://targetfeedback.gtisolutions.co.uk/surveys/SchoolsSurvey2017
