The Society is well respected for its outstanding achievement in education. The majority of its work focuses on supporting and organising practical workshops / lectures, community projects and work in schools and colleges, using a combination of old processes and modern technologies. The Society is also proud to host and support the annual Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award Photographic Residency.

In recent years The Royal Photographic Society has coordinated a number of projects that involve working with schools. These projects have ranged from artists in residence, INSET days and developing online teaching resources to support the National Curriculum. The Society has won awards for its work and is increasingly being recognised as a valuable resource by the teaching profession. As well as gaining sponsorship from external funders, The Society also works alongside the photographic Industry helping teachers and pupils appreciate and explore photography as a teaching and learning medium.

Photography, like most things, is ever changing and modern technologies are taking it to new extremes which were once not thought possible. The Royal Photographic Society aims to keep up with these changing technologies and opinions by providing information, training and advice for all those with a keen interest in photography from the amateur enthusiast to the seasoned professional.

The Society will continue its overall aim to promote high standards in photography in a broad and accessible way. It now has a purpose built lecture theatre and education suit fitted out with equipment and software for digital imaging. This enables The Society to deliver a programme of practical educational courses and events for members and non-members throughout the year.
