Aim: As part of a wider project, to identify the key components of a variety of models of transition planning that lead to young people gaining paid employment. Method: A sample of 87 young people leaving school in 2005 was drawn from 6 areas each operating a different approach to transition to employment. Data were collected on adaptive behaviour and other personal characteristics, on vocational input from school and employment support services. Qualitative interviews were carried out with each young person, and a parent or carer looking at factors influencing choice of next career step. Follow-up was carried out after 6 months. Logistic regression and loglinear analysis is used to determine influential factors. Result: Analysis is in progress. Our hypotheses are: a simple 6 model solution will not be adequate to describe outcome, adaptive behaviour will play an important role, direct training of employment skills at school will be influential, work experience with support during the last year of school will be a significant factor. Conclusion: The conference will be our first opportunity to present the emerging results. The paper will identify broad implications for schools, employment support services, and agency joint working.
