Understanding the careers cold spots.Boys, Jonathan; Hooley, Tristram; Barbone, Lucia; Hedges, Sophie; Spekesser, Stefan; The Careers & Enterprise Company (The Careers & Enterprise Company, 2016)This paper sets out our cold spots analysis which provides us with some important insights about how opportunities are organised in England. In the report we examine which areas have: high levels of engagement between schools and employers; young people who are making opportunity informed decisions and achieving positive outcomes in terms of education and employment. We also examine the areas in which young people are most likely to experience substantial barriers. This analysis allows The Careers & Enterprise Company to understand where more career support is needed and to direct our resources towards these areas. We hope that it this analysis will also guide the activities of others working in this space.
