LSYPE age 25 consultative conference

6th December 2013 10:00 to 16:00

CLS is currently developing the content of the eighth LSYPE survey, scheduled for 2015 when the cohort members will be turning 25. The cohort members were last interviewed in 2010, when they were aged 19-20.

Age 25 is an important age in the lives of the cohort members and will be significant in illuminating pathways to adulthood. To date, the study has focussed on education and training and has proved a valuable tool in monitoring the progress of the cohort though compulsory schooling, further education and early entry to higher education and/or the labour market, as well as evaluating the success of policies aimed at this group.

The conference will provide an overview of the LSYPE to date, synthesise submissions from the initial written consultation, and provide delegates with an opportunity to further shape the questionnaire content.

All interested stakeholders are welcome to attend, regardless of whether they made a written submission.

About the LSYPE

The Longitudinal Study of Young People in England (LSYPE) follows the lives of around 16,000 people born in 1989-90. The study began in 2004, when the cohort members were aged 13-14, and has collected information about their education and employment, economic circumstances, family life, physical and emotional heath and wellbeing, social participation and attitudes.

The LSYPE is managed by CLS and funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. The study was previously managed and funded by the Department for Education (2004-2012).
