Abstract

Social mobility means being able to improve your and your family’s standard of living, through better education, employment and income.

This report investigates how taking part in further education – such as an apprenticeship, work-based learning, community learning and adult education – helps people get better jobs and wages. It also looks at the effects further education has on the prospects for the children of learners. It is a review of published research from government, academics and think tanks.
