Report launch: The role of Family in Social Mobility: Impact of family resources on young people’s progression.
It has long been understood that family matters; the experiences and resources within families have significant impact on younger generations, in particular their transition from education into employment. We now have evidence showing how family matters. This research led by Newcastle University as part of the European research project CUPESSE evidences the impact of family resources, how they are transferred to young people and what can be done if there is too little or even too much capital. There will be opportunity for networking over coffee and cake after the launch.
