RADA Business, the commercial subsidiary of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, is continuing to expand its virtual performance training by launching three brand new programmes, whilst having already moved another six online to keep up with demand. 

This announcement comes as many leaders continue to face significant challenges, communicating and managing their teams through uncertain times, remotely.

The virtual programmes have each been designed to help business professionals lead, inspire, and connect with an audience in any situation. Equipping them with techniques to perform better at work, by mastering the art of leadership, communication and public speaking.

The virtual series includes: Unlocking RelationshipsLeading in a Remote EnvironmentVoice of InfluenceInterviewing Skills,Executive Presence for WomenImpact and Influence for WomenPresenting Made Brilliant, Personal Impact and Stepping up with Confidence for WomenThey take place throughout Winter, Spring and Summer 2021.

All programmes are delivered virtually, yet are designed to help participants improve their confidence and performance in-person, as well as when working remotely. 

Unlocking Relationships, which is a brand new RADA Business programme, has been designed to help managers and leaders adapt their communication style. By having a greater understanding of how to use the voice and body for greater impact, this course gives participants the tools to help build effective working relationships relationships, allowing them to build strong and trust-based relationships with others.

Another brand new programme designed for those who have experience leading a team, Leading in a Remote Environment will equip participants with the skills to effectively lead, inspire and unite teams – even if you are all working remotely or in different locations. 

Voice of Influence is an advanced and technical vocal course designed for people who have experience presenting and are looking to elevate their performance further, enabling them to be a more natural, powerful and influential speaker – whatever the scenario.

Interviewing Skills is the third new virtual programme to launch which teaches participants how to show up, making a positive first impression and ultimately demonstrate their true and authentic self to any interviewer they may come across.

Exclusively designed for senior women, Executive Presence for Women teaches delegates to build on their successes by developing status, resilience and gravitas. Women in business will learn how to extend their communication skills in order to command presence and supreme confidence when communicating in any setting. 

Aimed at women at management level, Impact and Influence for Women focuses on empowering women with the belief, skills and confidence to drive towards the next stage of their career. By examining the power of physicality, voice and language, it reflects on delegates’ current management style and teaches tools and strategies to use these attributes to affect the attitude and behaviours of key stakeholders.

Presenting Made Brilliant focuses on equipping business professionals with the skills to become a more confident public speaker. This course encourages delegates to take risks, push themselves and maximise impact when communicating in highly pressured environments. It takes the focus away from the content that is being presented, and instead focuses on how to present, by helping participants understand how to use their voice to move and inspire others.

Personal Impact is a course that teaches those at every stage of their career to perform with more gravitas and impact through the foundations of human communication – body, breath and voice. Business professionals will gain a greater understanding of how to communicate with clients and colleagues more effectively, leading to stronger and more successful working relationships. 

Stepping up with Confidence for Women is designed for women aspiring to reach management level - to equip them with the skills to release their full potential. 

Jessica Moores, Head of Open Courses at RADA Business, comments:

“It’s fantastic to be able to extend our online offering and equip business professionals with the skills and techniques they need to master the art of communication and workplace performance, whether they’re working remotely or in-person.’’ 

“Our aim is to deepen each participant’s understanding about how to use their body, breath and voice to maximise their communication impact whilst connecting authentically to the audience. During a time where remote working has become the norm, many have had to adjust to this new way of communicating. We are delighted that this suite of virtual programmes enables us to support people, across the world, with such ease.”

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.


We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.


FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
