Through in-class talks we can work with all ages of students and are happy to create an age/ability appropriate session tailored to your group’s interests. We can work around any Civics, Social, Political, Science project, and have assisted many students as part of their ‘Community Action Projects’. We can also advise students with regard to Career Guidance.
School Talks are free of charge, donations are always much appreciated. If you would like some fundraising ideas for your class please click here.
