The purpose of the research is to look at the desires and ambitions of young people in the south Wales valleys. The research looks at the preferences of individuals and the strategies they use to realise their ambitions. The research will focus on pupils in an English medium school and a Welsh medium school (where most of the education is through the medium of Welsh). The research will also look at whether the type of school a pupil attends impacts their ambitions and preferences for the future.
