Proprep partners with The Access Project to support STEM students
Proprep partners with The Access Project to support students from disadvantaged backgrounds
Proprep is delighted to be working with The Access Project, a UK-based education charity that supports students from disadvantaged backgrounds to secure places and succeed at top universities. Through a unique combination of in-school mentoring and personalised tuition, they aim not only to raise students’ learning outcomes, but to improve their confidence in achieving at university.
Proprep will provide The Access Project’s STEM alumni, transitioning from A-Level to undergraduate and from 1st to 2nd year, with access to Proprep’s bite-sized video tutorials and thousands of practice questions. These students will use Proprep’s resources to cement their understanding of the topics they find most difficult, apply their knowledge to practise exercises, and check their answers against video solutions.
Our partnership aims to address diversity challenges in STEM and give all students the opportunity to succeed. Katharine Jackson, Proprep’s CEO, said: “We are delighted to help The Access Project with their mission to ensure that every young person regardless of background can make the most of education and succeed at the top universities, unlocking their potential and ultimately enabling a fairer society.”
Alice Reilly, Head of University Partnerships at The Access Project, stated: ” We’re really proud to be partnering with Proprep. We work hard to help disadvantaged young people get into university and ensure they transition well into university life. By working with Proprep, our students will receive the additional support to help them succeed. Currently, 73% of students from disadvantaged households graduated with a 2:1 or a first-class degree, in comparison to 83% from more advantaged households, so this partnership supports us in levelling the playing field for disadvantaged young people at university.”
