If you’re thinking of entering a team in the Concern Debates, but aren’t sure what’s involved, contact us to find out about our debates workshops.
We can arrange a debates workshop at your school. It lasts approximately two hours and can accommodate a minimum of 25 students. We’ll also be running workshops where students from several schools will come together to learn about the art of debating.
At the end of the workshop, the students can put their new skills to the test in a mini-debate. It's an excellent way to introduce students to debating. It’s also a useful way to refresh your knowledge if you are already familiar with the debates.
The Concern Debates would not happen without our amazing team of volunteers across the country. If you're interested in adjudication, visit our dedicated adjudicator page.
Here are some resources that are useful before and during primary school debates.
These five videos provide a step-by-step guide to succeeding at the Concern Debates.
