Family, gender and young people’s aspirations to get into science | Nuffield Foundation

Family, gender and young people’s aspirations to get into science | Nuffield Foundation | BHPS | Scoop.it

This project investigated young people’s interest in careers in science, engineering and technology (SET), by conducting a secondary analysis of data from 11-15 year olds in the British Household Panel Study (BHPS). The researchers used quantitative and qualitative approaches to explore three main questions:

1) How far does gender and family background influence young people’s aspirations concerning SET related careers?

2) Does an early interest in science lead young people to pursue scientific studies and SET related jobs?

3) To what extent are young people who enter science reproducing family patterns or ‘inheriting’ a SET route from their parents?

Sharrock's curator insight, January 30, 2014 2:59 PM

excerpt: Results--

More boys than girls aspire to SET jobs.Boys also aspire to work in all SET sectors, whilst girls are mainly interested in health-related occupations and science professions.Aspirations for SET jobs have increased since 1994, although this is more pronounced for boys than for girls.Career aspirations are reasonably stable during adolescence. However, for those who do change aspirations, the change is gender specific, with boys increasing SET aspirations as they grow older and girls losing their earlier interest in SET jobs. This points towards an early divergence in the interests of boys and girls at around age 13.
