Speakers for Schools has been brought on board to mobilise the creative sectors’ high-profile leaders and their organisations to reach state school students. We help make it possible for influential figures to give their time annually through school talks, while also being able to help the busiest, leading employers make work experience placements with state school students possible.
Contact us below to get involved.
Speakers for Schools work to ensure high-profile leaders and figures are able to give their time to young people specifically in state schools through school talks and more. Below are the ways C-Suite level figures, national figures and recognised creative sector leaders are being asked to show their support by working with S4S to help ensure young people are inspired and equipped to consider creative careers:
We work with the highest profile figures and industry influencers, from CEOs to leading actors, connecting them to state schools that lack the networks to access these influential figures for assembly talks. We help make this possible for the diary and ensure they reach schools lacking networks to prestigious guest speakers.
We’re helping our creative sector speakers open the doors or their industry-leading organisations– from award-winning design studios to TV production companies– to offer 1 – 2 week work experience or insight days
