Research studies have found that:

  • The more young people encounter with employers during their studies, the more chance they will be employed as a young adult. This research was carried out in 2013, however, the same results have reoccured both in 2015 and 2016.

  • Research in 2017 has also shown, those young people who have most to gain from employer engagement currently have the least access to it.

Generation Success is here to change this, we are here to provide you with the greatest access and offering to gain the most you can from employer engagement.
