We want to help unlock students’ real potential and give them the very best opportunity to succeed in the ‘real world’. To do this, we help school foster their students skills, experiences and aspirations. To track the impact EE programmes have on the young people involved, we assess their progress and collect feedback from teachers and students throughout the academic year.

Our mission is incredibly ambitious, and so are we. We really do mean what we say in our mission – one day every student will be equipped to succeed.

There’s still a long way to go though and we welcome your feedback about how we can maximise our impact and measure it effectively.
