Job Title: Creative Learning and Development Team Intern

Working For: RSA

Location: London

Salary: £18, 546 per annum (equivalent to the London Living Wage, pro rata) + benefits

Job Details

An exciting opportunity has arisen to work within the RSA’s Action and Research Centre to provide support to the Education team.

The intern will provide general administrative and research support across the team. This will include a particular focus on the Learning About Culture project, which will include a series of large-scale randomised control trials and qualitative research to measure the impact of cultural learning educational outcomes. The intern will also work in depth to support other existing projects across the Creative Learning and Development portfolio.

This opportunity would suit someone with strong administrative and analytical skills, who has a knowledge of and interest in education policy and arts education. The post is likely to appeal to a self-starter who enjoys variety, and is comfortable with multi-tasking. We would like to hear from capable and passionate individuals who are committed to the ethos of the RSA, and who will benefit strongly from this opportunity. Sound IT and communication skills will be necessary. Experience of working directly with teachers, schools and young people would be an advantage, but is not essential. Above, all, you should be passionate about improving outcomes for young people.

As an RSA intern, you can expect to make a real and valued contribution to RSA action and research projects, as well as the opportunity to develop your skills through our in-house training and one to one training from RSA colleagues. We are particularly keen to hear from applicants who would benefit strongly from this opportunity.

The RSA combines thought leadership with civic innovation to further human progress. Building on our 260-year history as a beacon for enlightenment values, the RSA is currently at an exciting period in its history. We provide platforms for leading experts through the UK’s most ambitious free public lecture series, our projects generate new models for tackling the social challenges of today and we are building on our network of over 29,000 Fellows around the world – these are achievers and influencers from every field with a real commitment to progressive and social change.
