All state-maintained secondary schools, colleges & academies in the UK are eligible to apply for a speaker. We will get in touch as soon as a speaker is able to commit to speaking at your school. Please note we prioritise under-served, higher-need schools in our network and aim to reach students with the least access to outside speakers so we hugely encourage these schools to apply. PRU and some SEN schools are eligible to apply but be sure to let us know the type of talk your school is looking for, so we can ensure we are able to provide the right speaker for your students.
Unfortunately, we do not serve schools, academies or colleges outside of this remit, such as fee-paying institutions, due to our limited capacity and focus on supporting young people in the state sector.
If you are a primary school interested in bringing speakers in, please see our sister charity’s programme Primary Futures.
