At KMPF, we routinely collect data to reflect on our outreach work to consider its impact and track young people’s progression through their education journey. To do this, our partners collect pre- and post-activity data and surveys, which we use to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of outreach activities that are attended.

An example of the data we collect is activity attendance registers, which enable us to gather information on the students who we engage with, for example, their name, date of birth, postcode, biological sex and if their parents have any experience of university. This data is stored in a secure database called the Higher Education Access Tracker (HEAT), which enables us to compile reports and evaluations. We are committed to ensuring our programme of outreach activities has a positive impact on the learners we reach, so evaluating and evidencing these effects is crucial.

We gather surveys from students, which we use to track attitudes over time, for example, their thoughts about education, university and plans for the future. The insights we gain from all of this evaluation are fed right back into our programme, ensuring that learners’ needs are met, our activities continue to be improved, and we are meeting our aims.

Evaluation is also undertaken at the national level for the Uni Connect programme as a whole, by the Office for Students (OfS), to assess how successfully the programme is working and meeting its objectives.
