Abstract

As a consequence of the UNCRC it is expected that children and young people have a voice in the policies and practices that affect them, yet the ‘employability’ agenda cedes power to employers and government in deciding the skills and qualities required by professionals entering the workforce. This report focuses on student experiences on placement in a primary school setting in the north of England and their engagement of children’s voice in that experience. Focussing on students as upcoming professionals, the discussion considers how placement is organised by the employability agenda and how children’s voices can be marginalised.
