What is the Fellowship?
The Rank Fellowship is a network of former Rank Foundation School Leadership Award holders, and a number of honorary fellows. It seeks to build on the principles established by the leadership award by working to inspire and support leadership that makes a positive impact on society.
Since 1978, over fifteen hundred teenage boys and girls have benefited from financial assistance from the Rank Foundation’s School Leadership Award, and you can read more about the award here.
The Rank Fellowship is open to past and present beneficiaries of the Rank Foundation’s School Leadership Award. The Fellowship refer to their members as ‘Fellows’, and associate the Fellow with their cohort year. You can identify your cohort by the year you were awarded your School Leadership Award (ie. Cohort of 2017).
There are also a number of Honorary Fellows, with the invitation open to alumni from The Rank Foundation’s Time to Shine programme.
All Fellows and current Leadership Award Holders can subscribe to our Fellowship e-newsletter. The newsletter is frequently guest-edited by Fellows, and features Fellowship news, events and requests, as well as spotlight stories on individuals in the Fellowship. Usually, the newsletter is distributed once every two months.
If you would like to be added to the mailing list or would like access to older editions of the newsletter, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Career Advice and Work Experience placements throughout the year
Many Fellows are offering this form of mentoring advice about careers throughout the year. Some are also willing to offer work experience placements to Fellows wishing to gain an understanding of the work-place or of a particular career. Work experience is available in many companies and organisations ranging across public and private sectors. Placements have been offered by Fellows within these organisations and are sponsored by the Fellows.
