Preferences for a TalkThe following sections help us pair a suitable speaker with your school, trying to match to similar preferences for the event. Schools are notified after a Speaker is available and has agreed to visit the school. In this section please note: Each section explains how this information is used to find you a speaker, please read carefully We cannot always match exactly to topics, but endeavour to use these points as a guideline for finding you a great speaker for your school or college. Speakers may see parts of this section of your application when considering schools they can visit this year. a. Focus or Topic area for the Talk We always try to consider a preferred focus (or topic) when filling a school request, but please keep in mind we are here to help more state schools access leading industry and academic figures for free so will prioritise providing a speaker generally. The topic areas below are used as a general guideline and both relate to a speaker’s area of expertise, as well as the potential topic of the talk itself – but remember you would be tailoring your talk once we can find a speaker for your school. We try to fit within one or more of the topics selected, and may combine these where possible. Please select a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 5 tickboxes to indicate potential topics and speaker backgrounds preferred:*Choose any Topic We would appreciate the opportunity to host any SFS speaker and will work with their background and topic expertise.

Teacher's Statement This is the part of the application where we hope schools can share their vision for a talk and that we may share with speakers when matching your application. Points to consider below: Why are you applying for a talk from one of our speakers? What are you most keen for students to gain from the talk? Is there anything generally you would like the speaker to focus on?Since this used by the team to determine a good match to a speaker, it’s good to keep the statement clear about what the school will benefit from. If there were only very specific people the school would be willing to host, please mention here. As mentioned before applying we are unable to place requests for specific events such as Award Ceremonies so this is removed from any application before matching a speaker, and it is expected the school is still interested in hosting a talk outside of this request.*As a note, very specific requirements or overly general statements may affect our ability to fill the application, and requests for particular events will not be taken into consideration.c. Audience for the talk We expect schools to select a group of students once we have contacted you about a successful application. However if you have an idea of the group size for the talk, please indicate here. Please note: As our network of speakers donate their time and travel once per annum to keep these talks free, please note that the event requires a minimum of 50 students in attendance although many events have 200+ students for an event. If you have a special circumstance affecting potential audience size please Contact Us before submitting Speakers generally prefer to speak to a student group of mixed ability, especially those students who need extra encouragement. For audiences please keep in mind speakers are offering their time for an assembly talk during the school day unless they tell you otherwise once we have put you in touch. Anticipated number of students for a talk*Please enter a number greater than or equal to 50.4. Further InformationWe are trying to learn more about schools and their work with speakers.
