Event description
As part of our masterclass series for employers, we will be exploring opportunities for progression

About this Event

Our fifth session in this series, Progression, is about how you can support employees throughout their careers, by offering equal access to opportunities.

Social mobility isn’t just about who gets in, it’s also about who gets on. So have a defined list of skills required for each promotion – and build flexibility into job specifications. This helps ensure that the very best person is able to step up and no one is accidentally overlooked.

There could be a range of barriers for those who want to progress up the ranks of your organisation. People from lower socio-economic backgrounds typically find it harder to access training.

You could level the playing field, by ensuring training opportunities are evenly accessed by those from diverse backgrounds. Or you could offer comparable opportunities for progression and reward those taking non-graduate routes, who may not have traditional academic qualifications but a whole range of skills that could benefit your business.

This session will take the form of:

• A short presentation by the Social Mobility Commission – we are leading advocates for social mobility in England, who produce a host of research and guidance for employers

• An in-depth case-study from Ministry of Justice (MoJ) who will describe what they do to provide fair opportunities for progression across their organisation

• An interactive workshop for employers in which to explore ideas, share insights and tackle some of the road blocks

After the session, we will share an 'after-pack' with attendees that includes a check-list to help you refine your ideas. We will also be uploading a recording of the presentation and case-study, for those of you who were unable to attend. Check our News & Events for details or to view past sessions. You can also explore our progression page, which includes more top tips for employers.

We hope that you will be able to join us and thank you for being committed to driving real change in the social mobility space.
