HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

We surveyed 10,000 young people and conducted 17 focus groups across 12 of the countries where The Prince’s Trust operates to understand the attitudes of 18-35-year-olds towards the future of work in the context of the recovery from COVID-19.

The pandemic has taken its toll, but these young people told us about their career aspirations, what they need to succeed in the world of work, and how they are motivated to find jobs in the digital economy, green economy, caring economy or as entrepreneurs.

They explained that they need more support in the transition from education to employment, which has become an ‘upskill struggle’. They called on education providers and employers to play their part and help young people fulfil their true potential.
