Future Voices Kent and Medway is a new programme for Year 11 students, generously supported by the Colyer-Fergusson Charitable Trust. It is designed to provide students with essential communication skills for life beyond the classroom.
An interactive training day of public speaking, interviewing and networking is offered to students aged 15-16, who then have the chance to represent their school in a high-profile Showcase Event. The evening features a public speaking competition followed by a networking event, where students can practise their skills and connect with local employers, Higher Education Institutions and business leaders.
The training gives students the self-belief, skills and networks to take the next step in life with confidence, empowering them to seize every opportunity available to them.
Twenty five Year 11 North School students took part in this programme in school on Tuesday 3rd October. The programme was delivered by Ore Ogungbayi who inspired everyone and we thank her for giving these students a day they will never forget. Six students will be selected to take part in school assemblies where one student will be chosen for a regional showcase hosting forty schools in Kent and Medway region.
