Speak up Scotland

Speak up Scotland is our key programme- aimed at bringing debating to state schools as a way to lessen the poverty-related attainment gap.

Through free workshops and a Summer Camp, pupils are challenged to think strategically, speak persuasively and engage confidently. Speak up Scotland is aimed at helping schools with little or no debating to find their feet and set up a dynamic club.

If you're interested in taking part in this programme, get in touch with us here.

Lockdown Debating Materials

As part of our Speak up Scotland programme we have put together materials to help teachers, pupils and parents keep debating going during this lockdown period.​

You can find these materials below, and we'll also be updating our blog regularly with posts, videos and information on upcoming (virtual!) events. I hope you find this material useful. We're so looking forward to working with all of you in-person again once this uncertain period is over!
