    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.
  • The online programme



    You'll meet your Mentors for the first time and take part in interactive exercises to develop speaking confidence.



    The Mentors will lead conversations with you to explore your ideas and
    develop communication skills for the workplace.



    This week is all about interview practice, with your Mentors giving you personalised feedback on your interview skills.



    The programme wraps up with some presentation practice, with supportive feedback from Mentors to help build confidence.
