What we do

We run the UK’s leading fun and inspiring primary school debate programme, helping children develop essential skills in public speaking, persuasion, listening and critical thinking.

Why we do it

9 out of 10 organisations say school leavers aren’t prepared for the workplace, with 50% claiming young people lack even the most basic oral communication and teamwork skills.
