Campaigns & Talk Series

Campaigns are the charity’s organised talk series that help create a coalition of high-profile support on important topics for state school students, bringing together our charity’s work and furthering the future talent, social responsibility and aspiration work of our partners. Talk series feature 25-40 top figures giving their state school talk on an issue or industry focus that important to the next generation, helping galvanise their message of encouragement as well as encourage their peers to give their time too.

Over the years we have worked with Google, BAFTA to 30% Club UK, and to create compelling talk series for students. Read about these past campaigns and talk series below.
