About this download

The House of Lords’ Social Mobility Select Committee opened an inquiry into the transition from school to work for those aged 14-24. 

The Committee chose to focus specifically on those who are not, who do not intend to follow, or who did not follow the A-Level to Higher Education pathway. 

The Committee wanted to establish: 

  • who the young people are in this group 
  • what other disparate, and possible disadvantaged, groups fall within it.

The Committee intended to examine the school-to-work route for these young people, and whether, in its current state, it provides good employment outcomes and opportunities for them to move up the social ladder.
