About the Organisation 

We believe that every young person should have the opportunity to fulfil their potential and make the most of their education. We are passionate about reducing the educational barriers our students face, helping them to pursue a career in their chosen field and follow their dreams.  

Our mission is to support students from under-resourced backgrounds to access top universities, through a unique combination of tuition and in-school mentoring. We work with them to make good applications, get the grades and transition to university.  

The programme combats educational inequality and improves social mobility by raising students’ grades and supporting them to understand the pathway to a top university. Students who receive support from our programme are almost twice as likely to attend top universities as statistically similar students, according to UCAS.  

Why Work at The Access Project 

People who work at The Access Project are motivated by the desire to create a fairer society. We all play an active part in achieving the mission to help students from under-resourced backgrounds access top universities. 

In the last year we engaged with staff across our organisation and co-created an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion vision and strategic objectives. Our work on this will develop throughout 2023 to ensure The Access Project can foster an equitable place to work.  

We value every individual who works at The Access Project, and we have a wide range of benefits that make this a rewarding place to work. In our last staff engagement survey, 90% said they are proud to tell people they work at The Access Project.
