About This Project
The £21 million Aimhigher Associates Scheme was part of the wider Aimhigher programme, a national initiative funded by HEFCE. Overall, the scheme involved building supportive relationships between university students (Associates) and pupils (learners) within schools, colleges and academies throughout England. The main goal of the scheme was to encourage and motivate those learners from the lowest socio-economic categories who had the capacity and intellectual ability to benefit from HE.
The scheme, which operated through 42 Aimhigher Area Partnerships across England, was founded on school/university partnerships, which facilitated highly interactive relationships between learners and Associates. The scheme involved some 4,000 Associates, over 140 HE organisations, over 800 schools, colleges and academies and 19,000 learners.
