Concern Debates 2016 -17 give GCSE and A Level pupils the skills to formulate an argument, deliver a speech, stand up for their point of view and challenge their opponents’ opinions. Concern is looking for volunteers to join their panel of adjudicators to hear the insightful views of today’s youth on global issues.
A spokesperson for Concern said : “All we need are good listeners who can see arguments from both points of view. We will be running a brief training session which is just 45 minutes and helps the volunteers to understand the marking scheme for the debates. Each debate runs for just over an hour and takes place in the schools themselves in the evening after work. The debates will take place between October 2016 and May 2017.
By volunteering as an adjudicator you will also be helping students to enhance their transferable skills in research, analytical thought and public speaking.”
If you would like to volunteer as an adjudicator then please email: [email protected] or call: 02890 268029 before Friday 2nd September 2016
