School Speakers

We have free, trained, and experienced volunteers across England, Wales, and Northern Ireland that can help you and your school. Using their life experience and knowledge, our School Speakers can bring a personal dimension to young people’s study of Humanism that goes ‘beyond the textbook’. They offer a range of services and will fit around your needs and requirements.

Below are just some of the ways they can contribute:

  • Talk about Humanism and take part in a Q&A in an assembly or in the classroom
  • Share their personal experiences, beliefs, and values and explain what being a humanist means to them
  • Give a humanist perspective on a contemporary debate (eg. assisted dying, wealth and poverty, prejudice and discrimination)
  • Contribute to a specialist day (i.e. ‘collapsed’ or ‘off timetable’ day) for a whole-year group
  • Provide remote support to pupils when researching a particular topic, project, or investigation
  • Take part in a multi-faith panel dialogue exploring different viewpoints
  • Work directly with teachers by providing specialist information or material
