The Contribution of FE and Skills to Social Mobility

IES carried out a Rapid Evidence Assessment and data review for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to provide an up-to-date understanding of the contribution that learning and skills gained through further education make to social mobility, including measures such as improved individual and societal outcomes relating to well-being, health and life chances.

The review synthesised evidence from England and the UK, with a focus on adult learners.
