Duncan Partridge

Our highly experienced education team runs a wide range of educational and cultural programmes from scholarships for school leavers, teachers and professionals to ground-breaking speech training and competitions involving hundreds of schools in the UK and around the world.

Our work is divided into three key fields: oracy, international programmes and the education network which recruits, trains and retains our mentors and ambassadors.
