Institute For Fiscal Studies Deaton Review highlights that second generation ethnic minorities outperform in attainment of higher education despite less advantaged economic backgrounds but that this success is not reflected in the employment market.

We are delighted to launch EduTech Kids, a charity scheme for disadvantaged primary and secondary school kids. We aim to help alleviate digital poverty in education by providing laptops, smartphones and other digital equipment for their homes, donated through mobilising our network of corporate partners.
