Podcast - Reflections on the mentoring/tutoring evidence review

Our Widening Access Coordinator, DonnaMarie Steel, and Laura Robertson (Poverty Alliance) discuss the findings from our recent evidence review which looked at the mentoring/tutoring landscape in Scotland.

Launched in November, our recent evidence review with Poverty Alliance on the mentoring and tutoring landscape in Scotland is an important step on our journey to better understand the poverty-based attainment gap, what needs to change and where we, as an independent funder, may be able to add value.
