Like to get involved?

Find out how you could get involved with one of the RSA academies and help us connect students’ learning to the real world.

A key area where RSA Academies is distinctive from other academy sponsors is through creating inspiring learning opportunities between RSA Fellows and the students and teachers in the RSA Family.

There are six ways to get involved:

  • introduce young people to the world of work
  • contribute to arts, creativity and design experiences
  • be a Broadening Horizons mentor
  • contribute to student leadership programmes
  • be a school governor
  • make a donation

The purpose of these connections is to raise students’ aspirations and ambitions to be broader than possibly those of their immediate family and community.  In a small way, we aim to help students realise these ambitions. Schools in more advantaged areas will use their parents, parents’ contacts and alumni to do just that, for example, by offering careers talks, visits, work experience, mentoring and so on.  Schools within the RSA Family are all serving communities with above average levels of deprivation and do not, on the whole, have parents or alumni who bring these type of connections.

If you are an RSA Fellow and are interested in finding out how you could get involved, please complete this form (it’s really short!) and do familiarise yourself with the RSA/RSA Academies safeguarding policy.

Read our booklet to find out more.

Or if you are interested in becoming an RSA Fellow and being part of an exciting, active and inspiring organisation, we’d love to have you. Find out more about the RSA Fellowship here.

RSA Academies provides a truly practical way for Fellows to have a positive impact on society. They have the ability to support RSA Academies' pupils and teachers to help creatively enrich the school experience.
