The Brilliant Club launches ‘Our Year of Impact 2020/21’

07 Dec 2021

New figures published today in The Brilliant Club’s ‘Our Year of Impact 2020/21‘ show that the charity worked with 25,751 students – its largest ever cohort in a single year.

The 2020/21 academic year was a challenging one for students, parents, teachers and universities, who continue to be affected by disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. There is no doubt that this is one of the most difficult times that the education system has ever known.

But the charity’s Year of Impact 2020/21 report outlines figures which show strong progress against its aim of supporting less advantaged students to access the most competitive universities and succeed when they get there.

Alongside record numbers of students and schools, The Brilliant Club also took steps to counter the disruption to education caused by the pandemic. The charity offered online tutorials for the first time, and delivered 18,000 virtually. It also launched its Brilliant Tutoring Programme to help students re-engage and rebuild confidence in the classroom and introduced more young voices into the charity, through growing its Ambassador Programme and recruiting its first ever Young Trustee.
