The Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission is seeking bidders to undertake research into ‘downward mobility’. The purpose of this project is to understand why some people from advantaged backgrounds succeed in the labour market despite apparent low ability or few academic achievements. Conversely, the research should examine why some people from disadvantaged backgrounds do not succeed, despite apparent ability or academic attainment. These different outcomes should be explained in terms of correlations with individual characteristics using longitudinal cohort study data.
The closing date for bids is Tuesday 6 January, 17:00.
