UpRising Schools Programme


We work with schools, colleges and youth groups to deliver a range of bespoke workshops to support your learners to reach their potential.


The Programme

The Programme takes many forms but is designed to provide students with transferable skills and develop confidence and resilience.

Character development is integrated into all of our sessions, which generally target one (or more) of the following main topics:

  • Leadership development
  • Social action
  • Democratic engagement
  • Digital storytelling
  • Study & revision skills / stress management
  • Transition (i.e. KS3-KS4, KS4-KS5, KS5-KS6)


"I learnt about campaigns and making an impact. I was given pointers on how to catch the attention of the audience when pitching and how to make a website to promote my project. Overall I learnt how to make a successful campaign, whilst having fun."
Maria, 15


Whether it is a 2-hour workshop, a full day or a regular spot on the timetable, every workshop is a bespoke and adapted to meet the needs of each group.

Our costs are also adjusted to fit each group and session.

Workshops are tailored to ensure students get the best outcomes, increase skills, and have fun. 

Students will:

  • Learn practical tools & techniques for work, further study, volunteering.
  • Recognise and utilise their strengths.
  • Build confidence, resilience and motivation.
  • Develop leadership and teamwork skills.
  • Enjoy interactive learning.
  • Understand how to utilise digital media safely and for maximum impact.
  • Social action sessions provide case studies for EPQ, DofE or community projects.

Here are just a few of the project's achievements:

  • Delivered workshops to 900 young people
  • 144 social action campaigns created
  • 604 UpRising alumni hours contributed


UpRising Schools programme is a national, meaning we can  deliver any of the regions which we operate. We would also consider delivering beyond those areas too.

For example, here’s just some of the organisations we’ve worked with:

  • Bournville College

  • Cadbury College

  • RSA Academies

  • Colmers School

  • The International School


"UpRising has been instrumental to the success of the RSA Academies 'RSA8' Leadership Project. As their aims and ethos are so in tune with what we wanted to achieve, it felt like the perfect partnership!

From leadership qualities, action planning to measuring impact and success, they were able to offer quality provision for every aspect of the project."

Arvind Batra, Community Development & Student Leadership Coordinator, RSA Family of Academies
