ASPIRE TO HE Speak Out Challenge

Taking place in Black Country, Telford and Wrekin

This Speak Out Challenge is designed and delivered by Speakers Trust in partnership with ASPIRE TO HE to support Year 9 students in the Black Country & Telford and Wrekin region to develop public speaking and communication skills as well as build self-esteem and confidence. We aim to provide up to 1350 students with training to boost their confidence, build their skill set and increase their sense of agency. During the academic year, an Aspire to HE school will receive a free, one-day, expert-led workshop in public speaking and communication skills. 

The workshops are linked to the Skills Builder framework to further unlock learning and boost academic outcomes.

If you are an Aspire to HE school, contact them directly or email to find out more.
