The study, summarised in this brief, aims to ascertain what the main factors are that drive high post-16 participation of many ethnic minority groups, and what strategies are effective in encouraging participation.
Some minority ethnic groups in the UK have higher rates of participation at age 16 and 18 than both the majority white cohort and some other minorities. This project aimed to identify what determines their views on participation in post-16 education.
A systematic review scanned for research in the United Kingdom and synthesised evidence from the twenty-three most robust studies looking at the aspirations of young people, with an emphasis on those from ethnic minority groups.
