RSA Education seeks to realise the potential of all learners. This aim drives our Education project interests, which are focused on: curriculum innovation, and the promotion of democracy and social justice in education. Our various projects and interventions reflect these agendas.
We seek to develop engaging curricula that meet the learning, wellbeing and civic needs of learners, and is fit for the social and economic demands of contemporary society. This involves:
- broadening the existing curriculum
- ensuring the social, civic and economic relevance of curricula
- meeting learners' needs in terms of educational engagement and achievement, and wellbeing
We support the extension of democratic ownership of teaching and learning by diverse stakeholders. This involves devolution of educational ownership away from central government and towards communities and their diverse stakeholders (including educational institutions and their students and practitioners). An example of this is our Area-Based Curriculum initiative.
Eradication of patterns of exclusion and inequality in educational engagement and attainment is a necessary precursor to realising the potential of all learners. This involves:
- Working towards inclusion and equality in education
- Working against exclusion and patterns of inequality in educational attainment, ownership and engagement
