Final report of the Independent Reviewer of Social Mobility and Child Poverty – “University Challenge: How Higher Education Can Advance Social Mobility”



This briefing summarises the final report of the Independent Reviewer on Social Mobility and Child Poverty by Alan Milburn MP. It also welcomes and provides commentary on its various recommendations from a local government perspective.

Milburn focuses on universities in England and explores what they are doing to ensure their doors are open to the widest possible pool of talent. It considers what more they could do – and should do – and how universities can become part of a wider national effort to advance social mobility.

This briefing will be useful for Members and officers with an interest in and responsibility for educational policy, higher education professionals and all with an interest in tackling social exclusion and increasing social mobility.
