Start a new year by learning to coach debate

iDebate starts off a new year by having a training session to teach you how to coach debate. The spring term for colleges and schools has started and iDebate’s clubs are beginning to restart after a break for Christmas. With a new term we need new coaches to help run our clubs, and by coming along to this training session you can find out how.

By joining our team of volunteer debate coaches (the IDEA Fellowship) you will be helping to give marginalised young people the skills they need to thrive in the modern world; critical thinking (questioning the fake news), analysis (working out why it is wrong), communications (all those interviews they will need to take), and active listening (actually responding to what was asked, not what they may wish were asked).

You don’t need to feel that you are committed to anything by attending the introductory session. It is instead an ideal opportunity to find out if it is something you would like to do, and have the time to give.
