Brightside and other social mobility charities welcome the announcement of a new 'What Works Centre' to promote access, success and progression in higher education for underrepresented groups of students.
Brightside's online mentoring is featured as a means of tackling challenges to progression to higher education for disadvantaged young people in rural and coastal communities in new research from The Bridge Group.
Brightside is part of the Fair Education Alliance, a coalition of over 100 organisations working together to eradicate educational disadvantage. The FEA's fourth annual report shows the progress made in the past year.
Brightside is working with 19 consortia in the National Collaborative Outreach Programme. Our new report describes our approach to our NCOP projects, themes and challenges that have emerged, and areas of focus for the future.
