Between 2018 and 2020, we commissioned researchers at the University of Cambridge to evaluate the impact of The Scholars Programme. The evaluation had two phases. Firstly, the University of Cambridge carried out a desk-based review of the charity’s research and impact work to date. Secondly, the University of Cambridge conducted a randomised controlled trial (RCT) to assess the impact of The Scholars Programme on pupils’ cognitive outcomes. You can find out more about the RCT, including the results, here. The results from the RCT will also be published in a peer reviewed journal in the future.
Each year we commission UCAS to run an independent evaluation of our flagship access programme, The Scholars Programme, to understand the impact on progression to higher education. To date, we have conducted seven matched control group evaluations.
Our latest evaluation has been effected by the pandemic and thus should only be viewed within this context – further information about each of our evaluations, including the methodological considerations and key findings, can be found below.
Our Annual Impact Reports offer an overview of the charity’s work during the academic year.
In 2021/22, we mobilised 803 researchers to support 22,073 students in 1,067 schools across the UK, working alongside our 42 university partners. We also worked with over 100 parents through our new Parent Power programme, 31 student ambassadors from our alumni community, and launched two new programmes.
