Latymer Upper School shortlisted for the UK Social Mobility Awards

We are thrilled to have been shortlisted in the category of School/ College of the Year in the third iteration of the UK Social Mobility Awards. The awards have received an incredible response with the recently announced shortlist containing 57 unique organisations chosen from 115 submitting organisations. The Awards celebrate and recognise the forward-thinking organisations developing initiatives to promote social mobility, either within their own workforces or by influencing the debate from beyond their own walls. By raising awareness and celebrating the people and organisations that are committed to bringing about change, together we can advance the practical implementation of social mobility in this country.

The Awards, which are in association with Capita, received an impressive array of entries. The shortlist represents a range of sectors and industries that have demonstrated excellence in their social mobility initiatives.

The judging panel includes prominent figures from business, charity, politics and the public sector and is chaired by HM Lord-Lieutenant of London, Sir Kenneth Olisa OBE. They will determine the winners, who will be announced at an awards gala on 10th October 2019.

Tunde Banjoko OBE – Chief Executive and Founder of the UK Social Mobility Awards and Making The Leap, the charity that runs the Awards, said:

“We are delighted to have shortlisted our third cohort of finalists for the UK Social Mobility Awards, having received entries from many fantastic organisations and individuals. The Awards were created to encourage organisations across the UK to see social mobility as a business imperative and embed core strategies to advance it. While we celebrate the finalists, we are clear that this is a conversation and a movement for everybody.”
