Alan Milburn: 'Threat to new era of social mobility'
Because education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under separate governments , the SMC has a remit to promote social mobility in England but only to monitor progress towards improving social mobility in the other countries of the United Kingdom. Four specific responsibilities are listed on the SMC's website. The body was created by chapter 9, section 8 of the Child Poverty Act also known as the Life Chances Act , which required the establishment of an independent Child Poverty Commission to monitor the effectiveness of the Government 's then-yet-to-be-published Child Poverty Strategy. The Commission's "broader scope" incorporating social mobility was described in the Strategy as "the Government's new approach", designed "to ensure that the Commission considers the issue of child poverty within the wider context of children's life chances and inter-generational poverty" and "the crucial links between child poverty, children's life chances and social mobility". The SMCP Commission's role was described as being "to monitor progress against the broad range of child poverty, life chances and social mobility indicators, towards the end goal of eradicating child poverty. In semantic terms the name-change was criticised for putting together the terms "child poverty" and "social mobility" without addressing the potential "internal contradictions" of trying to deal with both at the same time, or specifying "the relative priority or importance of the two issues". In a political studies paper published in the Political Quarterly in , the renaming was interpreted ideologically as a covert rejection of any aspirations regarding child poverty.
University of Leicester’s findings feature in Alan Milburn report
But we've got what could be a lively day ahead at the Leveson inquiry, a speech from the employment minister and Alan Milburn's report on social mobility. Milburn has been giving interviews this morning and, although there is some evidence that social mobility has stalled in recent years, he struck an optimistic note. I've taken the quote from PoliticsHome. If the pundits and economist are right, then there is the potential for another big social mobility dividend today because the British economy is changing, it's becoming more professionalised.
Alan Milburn publishes social mobility report: Politics live blog
The government's adviser on social mobility will warn in a major report that the country risks squandering the chance to recreate the golden era of the s, when workers from all parts of society had the chance to join the professional classes. Alan Milburn, the former Labour health secretary, will tell ministers that despite a huge growth in white-collar work, there is evidence that people from poorer backgrounds and those living outside the south-east of England are being left behind. Speaking to the Observer , Milburn said the country had the opportunity to encourage a level of movement between the classes last seen in the s but that he had found no evidence of this happening. He said: "The chances of social mobility are greater if there are more professional jobs being created. So it is no coincidence that the s saw an unparalleled social mobility in Britain and that coincided with an upsurge in professional employment. The economy was becoming more professional, more white-collar jobs created, demands [increased] for higher quality, higher skill level and the sucking up of labour into the white-collar, better-paid jobs.
