Ipsos MORI was commissioned by the Office of Students (OfS) to conduct the Formative Evaluation of Uni Connect Phase 2 which aims to increase participation in higher education amongst underrepresented groups. As part of the evaluation, a survey was sent to schools and colleges eligible for Uni Connect targeted outreach between November and December 2020. The evaluation looked at school and college engagement and relationships with Uni Connect targeted outreach; the unique offering of Uni Connect targeted outreach and the differential outcomes, including how and why Uni Connect is working differently for different groups. The survey was conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic which may have impacted perceptions of activities delivered by the partnerships.
