About Cities of Learning
The RSA’s Cities of Learning programme is a new model for cities and regions to design and deliver inclusive lifelong learning which is tailored to the needs of local people and economies.
The Cities of Learning concept has been developed with partner cities and localities, education providers, employers, youth sector organisations and education funders.

our journey so far
Together, we’re breaking new ground and experimenting with how we can align interests and unite employer and learning networks across the city to build our vision of connected learning.
The Cities of Learning app has also been taking shape with the help of the pilot cities. The web-app is currently in beta-testing and will be launching in the of Summer 2020, featuring our early adopters in each city – a diverse range of organisations, including schools, charities, FE colleges, youth groups and employers.
The pilot cities have led the way in designing and issuing the first badges to learners, recognising the skills acquired from wide ranging and diverse activities.
Cities of Learning captures all the learning that’s hidden in a city and makes it visible via a digital app.
