Care-experienced graduates' decision-making, choices, and destinations: How does a background of care affect graduate transitions?

Care-experienced students overcome profound challenges to access higher education, such as educational disruption, and mental health issues arising from childhood trauma. Yet, we know little about their onward trajectories into employment and/or further study as graduates.

In this event, Dr Zoe Baker (University of York) will present interim and emerging findings from the first phase of the Care-Experienced Graduates’ Decision-Making, Choices and Destinations project. The project, funded by the British Academy, provides insights into how care-experienced students from England and Scotland make their graduate plans, what helps or hinders their transitions into graduate life, and how a background of care affects this. It does so by exploring care-experienced students’ narratives from their final year of higher education, through to 12 months following graduation.
