Read about our first-of-its kind Student Voice Project which focuses on capturing students’ views on CEIAG within schools.

Student Voice

The Student Voice project is commissioned by the Hull & East Yorkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (HEY LEP) in partnership with The Careers & Enterprise Company (CEC) and Hull and East Yorkshire Careers Hub, and delivered by Different Resonance.

In the 2022/23 academic year, the project was run for the first time and was a first-of-its-kind programme for the region. Due to its success, it will run again in the 2023/24 academic year.

The project focuses on capturing students’ views about careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG) within schools. Through a mix of in-person and online sessions, representatives from schools across the Careers Hub share their opinions on topics linked to CEIAG. Their feedback is then combined into a report which is shared with all stakeholders, including schools and employers.

“As this was a pilot project, we have been excited by the results we’ve seen. Some of the findings reinforce what many of us thought. But, there have been some interesting revelations that we’re excited to share with you in the end-of-year report.” – Fiona Headridge, Careers Hub Lead

You can download the 2022/23 report here. But, to whet your appetite, here are some of the key findings.

  • 50% of students want more careers activities in schools.
  • Students are most likely to turn to parents/carers or friends when looking for advice about careers,
  • 80% of students believe the Gender Pay Gap is still a prevalent issue, with 50% of students saying it will impact their career decisions.
  • The majority of students believe that employers are only “a little bit” or “somewhat” interested in engaging with young people.

Message to employers…
“The fact that thinking about our future can seem daunting may make it seem like young people aren’t enthusiastic about finding out about careers, but we just need the right information and guidance.”

Message to careers leaders…
“There needs to be a wider range of information about different careers, rather than just the typical ones.”
