• Boost speaking confidence for students with top employers

    Companies include Investec, Just Eat,
    General Electric, Google and Wavemaker

  • We Speak runs a 4-week online programme for schools and universities to boost speaking confidence.
     

    University students and sixth-formers take part in online interactive workshops and get a mentor from a top employer like Investec, Just Eat, Google General Electric or Wavemaker.

     

    Participants receive a Certificate of Achievement. It's a friendly and relaxed environment so perfect for students who feel less confident speaking.

     

    We've worked with schools including King's Maths School, City and Islington College and Mossbourne Community Academy, and universities including Goldsmiths University of London, UCL and University of Sussex.

  • Support from We Speak Facilitators

    Our workshop Facilitators are university students and graduates who have taken part in the We Speak programme themselves to build confidence. 
     
    They'll work alongside you during the programme so you can help the participants find out what they're passionate about and give them supportive feedback.
     
    The Facilitators are a really friendly group of people who are on hand to help support your conversations with our less confident students.
