Educational inequality exists in England. We want to change that.
There are certain barriers which have a greater impact on particular groups of students, and limit their chances of success. Data shows gaps in equality of opportunity in success and progression of:
- students of particular ethnicities
- disabled students
- students from areas of low higher education participation, low household income and/or low socioeconomic status
- mature students.
We believe that everyone should have the chance to benefit from higher education if they want to. All students should have equal opportunities to succeed and progress, regardless of their background.
