Each year in Scotland, around 50,000 young people complete their secondary education and leave school. This period of educational transition is full of opportunities and yet also presents risks. It is a period where significant decisions are made and life chances established. This research explores the experiences and outcomes of school leavers in Scotland, looking specifically at the shaping influence of migrant/ethnic identity and socio-economic background class. This policy brief is designed to summarise doctoral research carried out by Helen Packwood between 2015-2019. It draws together key findings and policy recommendations.
