Are you interested in reimagining how we prepare our young people for life in the 21st century? Perhaps you were inspired by the recent RSA screening of Most Likely to Succeed?
Join us to develop ideas around how we educate young people in a way that values their whole development.
The RSA Screening: Most Likely To Succeed event in Manchester (April 2017) generated a huge amount of interest and raised some big questions about the very foundations of our education system. The shared understanding that there are clear failings in our current high-stakes, performance-driven system by all who attended (including parents, teachers, and business leaders), really stood out and strengthened our resolve to develop a project that can connect all of these groups in order to do what we can within the constraints of our current system to try something different and to create a powerful case for change.
This project aims to focus on the following three areas:
- Providing a way for teachers and people from industry to collaborate in creating learning opportunities that allow students to approach learning in an authentic, engaging way.
- Establishing a network of people interested in reimagining education in the north-west.
- Creating a sharing platform for people to share action research and student projects in order to build an evidence base to critically evaluate the impact of different approaches to learning.
The workshop will be led by Martin Ainscough FRSA and his colleagues at Fred Longworth High School, Pauric McKeown and Jon Kime, with support from the RSA North team.
