Tech City College hosted the first London iDebate Cup on Saturday. At iDebate we believe passionately in debate’s use as a tool to develop a wide range of very important skills for young people’s futures in employment. Skills like critical thinking (looking at your opponent’s arguments), creativity (how to attack that nicely buttressed debate point), analysis (make sure your arguments go in depth) as well as the obvious ones like communications and public speaking. As such our focus is on providing training, with the opportunity to debate in public.

If you have ever wondered how you might go about judging a debate, or related activities such as public speaking, then this is your chance to find out. IDEA UK trainer Duncan Crowe will be running a training on how you judge debates in preparation for the London iDebate Cup. Both the training and the competition are taking place in Tech City College.
