Southmoor Academy, based in Sunderland, won the inaugural ‘School/College of the Year’ award at the UK Social Mobility Awards 2019. This interview with their Aspirations Coordinator, Claire Ungley, discusses their strategy for social mobility and why gaining national recognition is vital for building momentum for the UK-wide movement.
Organisations from across the UK gathered to celebrate the growing social mobility movement at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square. We celebrated the initiatives that have been most successful in advancing the cause and issued a call to action for greater commitment and collaboration.
