A great afternoon. Now I feel far more comfortable with incorporating debate into my lessons. I can really see the value of debating as a means of increasing pupil confidence.

Our pupil workshops are interactive and fun, getting the pupils debating right from the very start, and building skills and confidence in communication.

We run all kinds of debates workshops for pupils, from helping you to deliver full-class debates, to coaching your pupils for debates competitions.

During these workshops we cover debating skills and techniques, but we also include plenty of games and activities to build skills and confidence.

One ESU trainer can work with up to around 25 pupils, although we are happy to bring additional trainers if required for larger groups.

We can also arrange for scientists to visit your school to help pupils prepare for specific science debates.


In school- courses (CPD and pupils workshops) cost £250 for a half-day and £400 for a full-day, plus travel costs. All in-school workshops are tailored to your exact requirements and you will be provided with resources and materials.

If you wish, you can invite teachers from nearby schools to split the costs.
