Achieving success for all students

.

About Us

We partner with universities to engage their hardest to reach students. The outcome? Meaningful, measurable shifts that have proven to increase student retention and attainment. Our student-centered initiatives take students on a journey of self-awareness, instilling in them the confidence and drive they need to achieve their academic best. We also train staff to develop their inclusive practice and support longer-term strategic change.

Through our work with universities, we’ve seen:

-28% reduction in student drop-outs [compared to the control group]

-80% of students achieve 5% to 10% grade average uplift

-100% increase in student academic confidence in underrepresented groups

Nathan’s story

Our founder, Nathan, was what you could consider an ‘at risk’ student. At risk of dropping out of university, he grappled with a lack of academic confidence and the prospect of failing his degree completely. Coming from a Widening Participation background, Nathan made a personal commitment to attempt to achieve his personal academic best. As a result, he graduated from university with a First-class degree. Fueled by his experience, Nathan is now on a mission to help students overcome their own personal challenges and achieve their own academic success.

‘I founded The Educate Group so all students regardless of where they are coming from, can leave higher education with a sense of accomplishment. I believe authentic, relatable engagement is the key to achieving this. I want every student to be able to experience the satisfaction of completing their degree well, in the same way I was able too.‘  – Nathan Ghann, Founder

helping all students achieve successful outcomes.

1-2-1 Student Success Coaching

While your staff offer great student support services, the students who could benefit most may never walk through the door.

That’s where our Student Success Coaching Advisors step in. We proactively reach out to priority student groups to deliver 1-2-1 personalised, student-focussed coaching sessions through flexible communication channels. Available 7am to 11pm, coaching sessions take place on each students’ channel of choice, which may range from phone calls, SMS, messenger apps and web conference tools.

Our priority is meaningful engagement, and the outcomes are clear. We’ve seen a 28% increase in retention and 100% increase in academic confidence for participating students.

Leading Race Equity Staff Training Sessions

To close ethnicity-related disparities there must be a whole institutional approach.

However,

Institutional change cannot happen without ‘localised’ leaders who are equipped, trained and best positioned to strategically influence change within their department or faculty.

Our Advancing Race Equity Training course takes participants through a mix of online training sessions and ongoing coaching conversations. Participants are supported in understanding the key drivers of the problem in their context and area of influence. Then, working collaboratively they are supported to develop a plan of action to stimulate systemic change.

Bookings will open in 2021.
