This week, students across the country are getting back A Level and GCSE grades. Once a ticket to higher education, and thus higher paying jobs, many have recently questioned whether social mobility now has more to do with whether your parents are rich or poor, than with other factors.

Social mobility is never far from the front pages; education, geographic and intergenerational inequalities and jobs affect everyone.

This week we bring you a conversation from September last year, with Lindsey MacMillan, Director of the Centre for Education Policy and Equalising Opportunities and Anna Vignoles,  Director of the Leverhulme Trust where we explore issues around social mobility.
