Dialogue & Debate: Is education the answer to social mobility?

Cumberland Lodge

4 November 2020 - 11:00am - 12:00pm


Education is often seen as the key to boosting social mobility and improving equality of opportunity; but there is also a theory that creating better job opportunities would have a greater impact than encouraging more and more people into higher education. Everyone is welcome to join us as we discuss this topic with guest panellists:


- John Craven - Chief Executive, Upreach

- Dr Lee Elliot Major - Professor of Social Mobility, University of Exeter

- Jouja Maamri - Sustainability & Impact Manager, Regenerative Creations


You can join this webinar for free on Zoom, as a non-video participant, and interact with the panel via our live Q&A.
