@HEPI_news @Cis4Community This is largely down to a lack of joined-up government in DfE over #CareersEducation and #SocialMobility – a failure to think through how conflicting incentives play out in reality.

@HEPI_news @Cis4Community There’s a fundamental dilemma at the heart of #HEaccess: to be a fairer society, we want more disadvantaged people entering HE, but it is unethical and sanctimonious to attempt to tell any individual what choices they should make.

Wow. I found a donor trying to give >£1m to delivery work in a certain sector. I also found*, and told them, that there's very little evidence about 'what works' in that sector. So they can't reliably fund delivery b/c nobody knows what to deliver. They'd better fund production…
2/ of research about what to deliver (& how). I connected them to some researchers. Now, 3 months later, they're starting a partnership to produce effective #research in that sector.

That entire intervention only took me about 2 hours. Rescued >£1m from almost certain fail.
