Our Impact | Aspire

We believe that ASPIRE can demonstrate that it meets its aims of raising awareness, enabling aspirations and supporting the academic attainment of students to help them progress to university.

We track our impact in several ways. We use qualitative and quantitative data to track attitudinal shifts and progression to university. We use independent evaluations of our work to track what our schools think of our impact. More information can be found in our annual reports.

Since 2010 we have been tracking the university offers that students from our partner schools have been receiving. This is one important way we use quantitative data. From 2010 to 2018 there has been a 155% increase in the number of offers to university for ASPIRE students. The number of universities making offers has increased from 8 to 15, suggesting that students are setting broader goals for themselves and meeting more university entry standards.
