IFS Zooms In: The Economy


HIGHLIGHT: The state of social mobility

Season 2, Ep. 16

This week, students across the country are getting back A Level and GCSE grades. In the past higher education was considered a one-way ticket to better and higher paying jobs, now many question whether they will get better jobs, and have a quality of life higher than that of their parents.

Social mobility is never far from the front pages; education, geographic and intergenerational inequalities and jobs affect everyone.

This week we bring you a conversation from September last year, with Lindsey MacMillan, Director of the Centre for Education Policy and Equalising Opportunities and Anna Vignoles, Director of the Leverhulme Trust where we explore issues around social mobility.
