Home > January Update 2023

Now that all schools are back this week we would like to wish a very Happy New Year to you all.

We know many of you will have ambitions around progressing to the next stage of the Award this year. If this sounds like your school, be sure to book your assessment early by contacting your Professional Adviser.

This January we welcome Martin Russell to the position of Interim Programme Director, following Frances moving on to Interim Director of Programmes for UNICEF UK at the end of last year.

Martin has been an RRSA Senior Professional Adviser for over 10 years, working primarily in the North West of England but also with schools across the UK. Prior to that Martin has enjoyed a long career within secondary education. He brings a broad body of experience to the role and is well placed to guide the programme through the next year and beyond. Schools in the North West can still contact Martin for support regarding their work.
