Educating All 27 Jan 2017

Martha and Terry are two young graduates from Manchester who are Reclaim Young Leaders and alumni. Educating All stemmed from their experiences of a shared sense of alienation at University coupled with a lack of support. It is a youth led research study that aims to explore the institutional and personal barriers faced by working class students at the top universities in the UK. Research has been conducted and was published in November 2016 and stimulated a great deal of interest. Universities have asked the team to flesh-out the research recommendations to improve recruitment and retention of working class students. Educating All will also widen the dissemination of their report and develop a 'toolkit' for access officers at universities to use when working class students join their institutions.
