Founded in 2011, Speakers for Schools is a charity that provides UK state secondary schools with access to talks from leading, eminent figures across industry and academia, free of charge. The aim is to provide young people in state schools and colleges with the same opportunities to hear from inspirational speakers as those who attend well-known independent schools.
Our network of speakers includes prominent figures ranging from CEOs of major companies, politicians, media and arts people, scientists, to entrepreneurs and academics, working with state maintained secondary schools across the UK. Over 1,000 speakers and 2,000 state schools have signed up to date.
