HEAN improves the life chances of children and young people in the UK by supporting them through key educational transitions. Our programmes focus on individuals and institutions: making sure our work has a long-term impact.
Recent Sutton Trust researchhas indicated that the quality of applications is crucial in determining offer rates to equal-attainment candidates. HEAN designs and delivers programmes to ensure that applicants from less privileged backgrounds are supported in producing outstanding applications. Our mission is to tackle the "access gap" by working directly with students and supporting schools in developing their practice.
