Here at Speakers for Schools, we’re always looking for new and innovative ways to give hard to reach students access to top opportunities.
We’re excited to announce that, as part of that effort, we’ve launched our Virtual Talks and Virtual Webinars Programme.
The SFS Virtual Talks programme allows speakers to remotely connect with students in classrooms and share their unique insights and advice with young people. A SFS virtual talk is generally between one speaker from the network who is paired with one school to deliver a talk with Q&A via a video calling platform. SFS have found that schools generally use Microsoft Teams, Zoom or Google Meet. You can find information on planning a virtual talk here
The SFS VWebinars programme consists of a timetable of curated content that will be livestreamed to young people studying at home and those still attending school.
In the academic year, 2020-21 the Speakers for Schools Inspiration Team will host virtual webinar talks a few times throughout the year, do look out on our upcoming talks page for regular updates from our speaker network. These events will run outside of typical school hours and will be one-way video webinar style as we have previously put on for students during the coronavirus lockdown.
We’re delighted to have been able engage with over 26,000 young people, across the UK, via Virtual Talks!
