F.R.E.D (Freedom to Release Emotional Dialogue) Talks are our version of TED Talks in which we deliver workshops teaching young people how to use their voice and gain confidence to express their ideas about issues they are passionate about.

What's it all about?

Delivered as a 3-hour workshop with whole class groups

  • Young people learn the importance of using their voice for positive action and leading the way.
  • Promoting the importance of voting, exploring the positive use of social media to raise profiles and issues and reach a wider audience.
  • Two elected students will share the groups ideas through healthy debate and will create a video to be presented to the whole school.
