After having trained almost half a million students across the east, south, and west of the UK over the last decade, we are delighted to announce that this year we have finally extended our work up north. We are proud to be able to offer our public speaking and communication training to students across Yorkshire and celebrate their achievement in the first-ever Yorkshire Speak Out Challenge final! 

Young speakers from across Yorkshire will be sharing their views and opinions and competing for the title of Yorkshire Speak Out Champion 2022 at the Bury Theatre @ Royal Armouries in Leeds on Wednesday 6th July, at 6.30 pm.  

By the end of this academic year, over 1700 students in Yorkshire will have received our public speaking training to increase their confidence and help them find their voices. Following an expert-led interactive workshop, an assembly final, and a digital semi-final, speakers have been chosen from across Yorkshire to compete in the event. This final is a huge celebration of young voices, and no matter who the winner is, every participant has achieved so much in winning a place at the final.   

This programme is generously funded and supported by the 3i Group Plc who share Speakers Trust’s vision to provide young people with the essential life skills to reach their full potential.
