Opening Minds!

The RSA sponsors the RSA Academy which is a hugely impressive place which uses a curriculum based on Opening Minds...

RSA Opening Minds initiative promotes innovative and integrated ways of thinking about education and the curriculum. Teachers design and develop a curriculum for their own schools based round the development of five key competences:

   1. Citizenship
   2. Learning
   3. Managing information
   4. Relating to people
   5. Managing situations

A competence based approach enables students not just to acquire subject knowledge but to understand, use and apply it within the context of their wider learning and life. It also offers students a more holistic and coherent way of learning which allows them to make connections and apply knowledge across different subject areas.

Opening Minds was developed by and is supported by the RSA and is now being used in over 200 schools across the country. You can find out more by visiting their website at
