The IDEA Fellows help run iDebate's World Debate Clubs in schools and FE Colleges around London this training will introduce you to many of the skills you need both to debate and to run a club for young people. 

You can also join us if you are just interested in learning to debate or burnishing your public speaking skills (for a small fee, it is free for those signing up to be fellows).

Interested in giving young people a voice? In encouraging others to practice their freedom of speech? In inspiringing the next generation of debaters? Join iDebate for the second of our summer training workships to help you learn how to teach debate to others.
