Fund a programme
It costs us £265 per student we put on a mentorship programme. Compared to summer school places which cost around £1,000, this is a highly cost-effective solution with great outcomes. Last year 71% of our applicants received an offer from one of their top three university choices. We’re cost-conscious and focussed in our interventions. We know that to deliver a good mentorship scheme we need thoughtful follow-ups, diligent staff members, and talented mentors.
How we target schools
Our next round of application mentoring programmes will launch in February 2019. To run our programmes we partner with leading universities with a history of working on outreach in the region. We use Ofsted, UCAS and university admissions data to establish a list of target schools that have high achieving students, but low progression rates to top universities.
