Fair Access to Professional Careers: A progress report

In 2009, Alan Milburn, Chair of the Panel on Fair Access, reported on what the UK's professions were doing to aid and abet social mobility in the UK. Unleashing Aspiration made 88 recommendations to professions, employers, universities, schools and government. This new report, Fair Access to Professional Careers, documents what has changed since then.

This is the first of three reports and focuses on the role of the professions. Two more will follow shortly: one on higher education and the contribution universities are making to social mobility; and the other an assessment of what government is doing to tackle child poverty and enhance social mobility.

The question posed by this first report is whether the growth in professional employment is producing a social mobility dividend for our country. According to the findings of the report, the short answer is not yet.

The report examines what the professions and government are doing. It looks at specific professions and makes recommendations for further action to build on those made in Unleashing Aspiration to improve social mobility. This report concludes that without further and faster action on the part of the professions, government and others, Britain risks squandering the social mobility dividend that the growth in professional employment offers our country.
