Abstract

This article is based on two research projects which sought to examine the challenges faced by the Connexions Strategy in England. It traces the ways in which this research was put into the public domain, and how the evidence collected was wrongly used to demonstrate that Connexions had failed. The article also seeks to shed light on how the Connexions Strategy, announced at the turn of the century by the prime minister as 'our front line policy for young people' could be undermined within five years by junior ministers.
