The Access Project
The Access Project & Impetus
Our partnership with Impetus goes so much deeper than funding – the ongoing involvement from their expert staff has supported us to develop a truly impactful programme and to prepare us for scale.
– Nathan Sansom, CEO, The Access Project
The need: Disadvantaged young people are significantly under-represented at top universities, making up only 6% of the intake.
Our charity partner: The Access Project works with high-potential students from disadvantaged backgrounds, providing tutoring and intensive support including mentoring, practice interviews and networking, to help them get into top universities.
Our impact: Working with us, The Access Project now works in more schools, with more disadvantaged young people achieving the outcomes that matter. 56% of their students were accepted to top tier universities in 2018, up from 30% when we started working with them in 2014. We’ve also helped to strengthen their leadership team.
