Diversity Questions

The GES Strategy 2021 - 2024 identified that the GES has a data gap regarding the information we hold on the diversity and socio-economic background of our profession. Further, externally commissioned audits have also identified that this data gap is currently a barrier to comparing the composition of the GES profession with other government professions, with the UK Civil Service more widely, and with the broader society which we ultimately exist to serve.Whilst these questions are not mandatory, improving our data coverage in this area - and ultimately our understanding of the GES profession - is a corporate priority for the GES Board and Chief Economists across government. If you are comfortable doing so, we please ask that you complete the questions below. As per the GDPR notice on the following page, all of your information provided here will held and used in a secure manner that is GDPR compliant, for the purposes explicitly set out (as above and repeated in GDPR Notice).

Do you consider yourself to have out of work caring responsibilities?
Were you ever eligible for Free School Meals?
What type of school did you mainly attend between the ages of 11 and 16?

Up to your 18th birthday, what was your Parents, Guardians and/or Primary Carers Highest Education Level?
