The most recent survey took place when you were age 25-26, in 2015-16. We hope to contact you again at key points in your lives.
While you were a teenager, we surveyed you every year from the age of 14 to 20.
You can find out more on the ‘What have we learned?‘ pages.
In May, we invited you to complete a special online COVID-19 Survey. You will receive an invitation for a second COVID-19 Survey in September.
You had reached a quarter of a century! Age 25 is a big milestone in many people’s lives. A lot of 25-year-olds are faced with big decisions – be it about their careers, housing, families or finances.
Next Steps started following the story of your lives when you were in Year 9 in 2004. In total, 16,122 people have taken part in the study over the years. We visited you seven times while you were teenagers – from the time you turned 14 to when you reached age 20.
