Our Future (formerly the Longitudinal Study of Young People in England (LSYPE2))

Series abstract

The Department for Education (DfE) commissioned the Our Future study (formerly known as the Second Longitudinal Study of Young
People in England (LSYPE2)) at the beginning of 2013. It is one of the largest studies of young people ever commissioned.

Our Future aims to follow a sample of young people through the final years of compulsory education and their transition from
compulsory education to other forms of education, training and employment. The survey will collect information about their career paths
and about the factors affecting them; and provide a strategic evidence base about the lives and experiences of young people.

There are now two separate studies that began under the LSYPE programme. The first study, Next Steps (formerly LSYPE1), began in 2004, and is managed by the Department for Education (DfE). In 2013 the management of Next Steps was transferred to the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) at the UCL Institute of Education, when the DfE launched Our Future.
