Experiences and outcomes of Alternative Education participants

June 2023   |   Reports

Cover of Alternative Education reportWe used the Integrated Data Infrastructure (IDI) to look at the characteristics, life experience and family and community context for Alternative Education young people and compared their outcomes with a matched group of young people with similar life experiences and contexts. 

This analysis shows young people in Alternative Education have significant needs and have had disrupted and traumatic histories. Their outcomes are substantially worse than the total population but also meaningfully worse than the matched group we compared them with.

This report is part of the Education Review's Office wider research and evaluation project to understand the quality of provision in Alternative Education.
