Responding to Boys to Men, the Higher Education Policy Institute’s (HEPI) report on the educational underachievement of young men in higher education, Sir Peter Lampl, Chairman of the Sutton Trust and of the Education Endowment Foundation, said:

“Today’s HEPI report confirms that young men are increasingly less likely than young women to go to university. It is important that this gender gap is properly addressed, as it is most pronounced for those from the poorest communities. This means not just looking at university access, but also ensuring that there are degree level apprenticeships on offer too, with universities supporting them.“
