HELP YOUR STUDENTS BE HEARD
Should homework be banned? Do smartphones encourage creativity? Your students are full of opinions - but are they confident in communicating them effectively to others?
Our fun, engaging workshops for both primary and secondary schools develop students' ability to do just that, helping them to think critically, build cohesive arguments, and improving their delivery, listening and response skills. Students are also introduced to the formats used in our renowned national debating and public speaking competitions which can open up opportunities for personal development, networking and travel.
As well as boosting students' self-esteem and competency in communication, debating and public speaking have also been found to impact positively on student attainment across the curriculum.
