Please take time to read the following information carefully; we will ask you to confirm that you have read and understand this document prior to commencing the interview.

Purpose of the research

CFE Research has been commissioned by the EY Foundation to undertake an independent evaluation that determines the value and impact of the programmes currently in place for young people.

The evaluation will explore your experiences from initial engagement through to completion of your involvement – or present day for those who continue to be involved – to inform the future development of the EY Foundation’s work. The research is designed to understand the process through which outcomes for participants, volunteers and employers are achieved, and to determine the impact of the programme all those involved, both in the short and long term.

What does participation involve?

You are now being asked to participate in an interview about your experiences of the programme, including what has worked well and key learning points for the future.

You can terminate the interview at any point and/or decline to answer specific questions without giving a reason. Subject to your permission, we will record the interview for transcription.

What personal data will be captured?

We will not ask you to provide any personal information; however, you may volunteer this information in response to a question where you deem it to be relevant. Any personal data provided will not be kept longer than is necessary for the purpose of the research.

Who will see my data?

The interview recording will be transcribed for analysis purposes. The transcript and recording will be saved using a unique identifier rather than your name on a secure network; only those researchers working on the study will have access to it.

This will inform a series of published reports, outputs and presentations.
