The RSC publishes an excellent range of inspiring, innovative and fun resources for students and teachers and is the largest non-government supporter of chemistry education in the UK.
We work with teachers and academics to modernise curricula and work closely with the UK government, subject associations, professional bodies and learned societies to ensure a coherent approach to science education.
We encourage initiatives to attract students to the chemical sciences from all parts of society and raise awareness of potential careers. An advisory service and a variety of careers publications for students, parents and teachers are available.
