Our Year of Impact 2021/22

03 Feb 2023

In our newly published Year of Impact report for the 2021/22 academic year, we share the programmes we have run, the communities we have worked with, and the places you can find us in.

Despite the ongoing challenges in higher education, during the 2021/22 academic year we mobilised 803 researchers to support 22,073 students in 1,067 schools across the UK, working alongside our 42 university partners. We’ve also worked with over 100 parents through our new Parent Power programme, 31 student ambassadors from our alumni community, and launched two new programmes.

The 2021/22 academic year also marked the first year of our Join the Club strategy, which outlines our ambition work to work with 100,000 pupils over the next five years through our flagship Scholars Programme, and 11,000 undergraduates to transition and succeed at university.

As we move into the second year of our strategy, we look forward to launching the pilot of our new attainment-raising programme, Make Your Mark, in the spring of 2023. In the coming year, we will also be expanding Join the Dots, our university transition programme, designed to create a network of support for students in the first months of their university life.
