Influencing policy on social mobility

Posted by fh56 at Aug 23, 2011 08:43 AM |
Research by Dr Gavin Brown has been used in evidence in a major government report on social mobility.

The report, "Fair Access to the Professions" written by former Cabinet minister Alan Milburn cites a paper Dr Brown published in the British Medical Journal last year. Dr Brown's work evaluated the impact of initiatives designed to allow fair access to medical degrees for young people from socially disadvantaged communities in inner London. Dr Brown, who worked as a widening participation practitioner before beginning his academic career, continues to research spatial inequalities in access to higher education and has a particular interest in how young people's educational and career aspirations are shaped by the places where they grow up.
