We are required to target learners who are from disadvantaged backgrounds and statistically less likely to progress on to further and higher education. We are required to ensure that at least 66% of the learners who engage in our activities meet one or more of these criteria. These include learners who:

  • reside in deprived neighbourhoods, where progression rates to higher education are low
  • are from low socio-economic backgrounds
  • are currently in receipt of a post-16 bursary
  • are in receipt of free school meals
  • are currently looked-after / in care or have recently left care
  • have a disability
  • post-16 students on vocational qualifications in state funded institutions (who are doing no more than one standard A-level)
  • mature students (those on an Access course and / or those over 21-years-old).

We can help you identify a cohort if you could provide us with the postcodes of learners within your group and an explanation of how they meet the above criteria. Please contact us for more information.
