The RSA Academy Tipton

The Rooted Lab – PAL is working with the Comino Centre at the RSA Academy in Tipton to deliver a six week non-residential Lab, building on the approach we piloted in our If Not You Who Else? Lab of 2011.

This project aims to support young people in Tipton to increase their aspirations and develop their leadership abilities. Young people will have the opportunity to work alongside professional artists to produce short films and animation, developing their communication and marketing skills through dialogue, debate and presentations.

This Lab has been designed to support the International Baccalaureate Career- Related Certificate (IBCC). The RSA Academy is one of the few schools in the world to be running this vocational version of the IB to equip students with the skills required by employers.

The Comino Centre is playing a key role in ensuring that the IBCC is developed effectively, through enhancing the service learning element of the programme, raising the profile of the IBCC with HE institutions and ensuring the quality and experiences of the programme are to a high standard.

This Lab is funded by the Comino Foundation
