Our school Careers and Destinations lead Mrs Williams suggests some useful links to talks from Speakers for Schools, an organisation set up by Robert Peston to give all school children access to prestigious speakers across a range of industries.  Read about their latest online offering whilst we are all at home:

Speakers for Schools have launched a Virtual Talks programme!  They will be offering free livestreamed talks from some of the UK’s top leading figures.  You will be able to hear masterclasses and interviews from speakers from across: business, arts, academia, media and more.  Speakers will be sharing their own stories and expertise on a variety of subjects.

You can see the schedule of talks here!
