Concern Debates

Volunteer Adjudicator 2018-2019

Concern Debates 2018 -19 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.

Role Description:

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 2018 and May 2019.  You can support as many or as few debates as you wish, but we would ask all adjudicators to consider supporting two debates during the programme. 


This is an excellent opportunity to volunteer as an adjudicator for upcoming schools debates, enabling students to enhance their transferable skills in research, analytical thought and public speaking.  If this interests you then please get in touch!

Closing date 14th September 2018
