MK College Group Community Impact Report | MKCG

Building Fairer Futures

Community Impact Report

In the last academic year, we influenced 18,206 Fairer Futures across the Group through driving innovative and aspirational student-focused learning and educational experiences; strengthening our partnership with industry through addressing the skills gap and talent shortage; promoting equality, fairness, diversity, and inclusion across our communities; and driving social value through our community work.

We are excited to share our first Impact Report which showcases some of the fantastic work that our learners, colleagues, employers, and wider communities have delivered. Thank for your contribution in ‘Building Fairer Futures’ and your influence in creating more opportunities for all to succeed and transform their lives.

The Community Impact Scorecard

The MK College Group Impact Scorecard has been self-rated based on key performance measures and internal data, to view the individual measures expand the sections by clicking the plus sign.

We continue to look for ways to improve how we track and report our impact. Moving forward, will set targets to achieve and launch external surveys for our communities to rate our performance—enhancing the robustness of our scorecard and its outcomes.
