What happens after the workshop
After your in-school/remote workshop(s) you will have several students with powerful speeches who could represent your school at the inter-school level, the Regional/Digital Final. To select your speakers we recommend holding an Assembly Final either in school or remotely. This is an excellent opportunity for your students to share their speech with more teachers and fellow students, gain more vital speaking experience and build confidence for the next stage of the programme. To help you run an Assembly Final, use the resources below.

Digital and Regional Finals
We hope there will be a combination of online Digital Finals and live, in-school Regional Final events in 2021. We have some Digital Events scheduled already so if your school has already held its workshop, students’ speeches can now be submitted – please get in touch to find out more. Both event formats are a fantastic opportunity for each selected young person to share their voice and be heard by a wider audience.
