Concern Debates 2017–18: Volunteer Adjudicators

Concern Debates 2017-18 give GCSE and A Level pupils the skills to formulate an argument, deliver a speech, stand up for their point of view and challenge their opponents’ opinions. Concern is looking for volunteers to join our panel of adjudicators to hear the insightful views of today’s youth on global issues.

All we need are good listeners who can see arguments from both points of view. We will be running a brief training session which is just 45 minutes and helps the volunteers to understand the marking scheme for the debates. Each debate runs for just over an hour and takes place in the schools themselves in the evening after work. The debates will take place between October 2017 and May 2018.

By volunteering as an adjudicator you will also be helping students to enhance their transferable skills in research, analytical thought and public speaking.

If you would like to volunteer as an adjudicator then please email: debatesni@concern.net or call: 02890 261524 before Friday 15th September 2017.
