The Chair of the Social Mobility Commission regularly engages with government Ministers, including through meetings which take place throughout the year. The Department for Education is fully committed to the work of the Social Mobility Commission. We value the wide-ranging work carried out by the Commission, including its research programme, its State of the Nation annual reports, and both the Social Mobility Index and the Social Mobility Employer Index. My Rt hon. Friend The Secretary of State spoke at the launch of the Social Mobility Employer Index in July 2017, alongside members of the Commission.
