An excellent session. Many thanks to the experts who shared their insights. Among the many great takeaways, I’ll highlight one from Simon Field who drew from pactice in other countries…

@res_publica @CSkidmoreUK #LifelongEducation
@res_publica @CSkidmoreUK To recognise workplace experience of older learners, design a qualification with no course structure, just an assessment. Courses can be self-designed to plug individuals' knowledge/skills gaps. An interesting approach to reskilling challenge.
An issue which keeps coming up at every evidence session is the desperate need for better careers information, advice and guidance in schools, colleges and communities.

Our work on promoting #socialmobility in 🇦🇹 has finally been released as an @OECD_Social Working Paper:…

Socio-economic outcomes (earnings, occupation, education) are highly persistent across generations in 🇦🇹 even as income inequality is low

Thread 1/6
The paper discusses policies in 4 areas to boost social mobility:

1) Expanding quality early childhood education and care (ECEC) can promote upward mobility. ECEC participation rates in 🇦🇹 have risen over the last decade, but remain below those in many #OECD countries

2) Supporting #youth with their school-to-work transition helps educational mobility. 🇦🇹 already does a lot in this area, but it could improve funding for disadvantaged schools and consider the appropriateness of "tracking" pupils in school at such a young age.

New #openaccess paper out today in Population, Space and Place with @pdqnorman ‘Establishing a framework of analysis for selective sorting and changing health gradients’ #healthinequality #migration #deprivation #socialmobility 1/
Inequalities in health are well documented. But it is less clear why inequalities between people and places change over time. One mechanism may be the redistribution of differently healthy people between locations, area types or social classes. 2/
The relationship between different socio-spatial trajectories and health inequalities is widely explored. But conclusions vary, in part due to different approaches employed. 3/

This piece for @HEPI_news by @Cis4Community (Beka Avery, Pathways to HE) is a really excellent dissection of some of the problems with HE outreach and the mismatch of priorities between unis and schools/colleges.…
@HEPI_news @Cis4Community This is largely down to a lack of joined-up government in DfE over #CareersEducation and #SocialMobility – a failure to think through how conflicting incentives play out in reality.
@HEPI_news @Cis4Community There’s a fundamental dilemma at the heart of #HEaccess: to be a fairer society, we want more disadvantaged people entering HE, but it is unethical and sanctimonious to attempt to tell any individual what choices they should make.

The closures that @Rachael_Swindon highlights should also been seen in the context of government policy. She is completely right that this is how the Tories are reducing #socialmobility but it is also how they are reducing access to other vital services for the most vulnerable.
It has long been government policy (in common with other countries) that people should access government services online. Other countries recognise that there is a need to keep other options open to protect the most vulnerable. The UK government took a different approach.
The UK government decided to tell people who had difficulty accessing #digital services that they should go to the #library where staff would help them. They then gave no funding for the training of library staff or for their time or for the equipment needed.
