What We Offer

We recognise that the development of a robust research strategy is only the first step towards achieving your organisational objectives. Implementing and continuously evaluating this strategy is crucial for ensuring its effectiveness and alignment with your evolving goals. Through our RSA Campus Training and Support Services, we offer customised and customisable masterclasses and workshops to support your team through these critical phases. We also provide a range of post-engagement solutions to maintain communication with our clients and extend support throughout the lifecycle of strategy implementation. Following the design of your strategy, RSA Campus Training and Support Services provide assistance and guidance to transition this strategy from idea to action. This ensures that strategies are translated into operational realities within your organisation.


  • Customised and customisable masterclasses and workshops: Training sessions are
    tailored to reflect the specifics of your strategy, ensuring a coherent understanding
    among team members.
  • Knowledge Transfer: Training transfers the requisite knowledge and skills to your team,
    enabling them to manage and adapt the research strategy independently over time.
  • Interactive Learning Environment: The training environment promotes interactive discussions and real life problem-solving, ensuring a deep understanding and confident execution of the research strategy by your team.

Coaching and Support

  • Continuous Support: We offer ongoing support to address any emerging challenges and ensure the research strategy remains aligned with your organisation’s goals.
  • Practical Implementation Guidance: Our consultants provide hands-on guidance to your team during implementation, addressing any blockers and challenges to ensure that the strategy is effective.
  • Evaluation and Feedback: Periodic evaluations are conducted to assess the effectiveness of the strategy, with feedback provided to ensure continuous improvement.

With the support of RSA Campus Training and Support Services, your organisation is equipped to transition the new strategy into actionable operations. Through this service, we aim to empower your team to navigate, manage, and optimise the research strategy autonomously, fostering a culture of self-sufficiency and continuous improvement.
