The government’s role in education

“The inability to speak fluently is one of the biggest barriers to opportunity…this is a subtle and significant layer of the class ceiling.”

These were the words of Sir Keir Starmer as he unveiled Labour’s Opportunity Mission earlier today. Debate Mate is excited to support Labour’s commitment to promoting communication and oracy to young people across the UK, which chimes with our longstanding vision to make these crucial skills available to everyone, everywhere.

Since inception, Debate Mate has worked with over 120,000 students, teachers and professionals across 50 countries, and, as we move toward generative artificial intelligence, the human skills that Debate Mate teaches have never been more important.

At Debate Mate Limited, we teach all the same skills that are needed in the workplace: critical and creative thinking, listening, empathy and core confidence. For ever pound, dollar, yen or bitcoin your company spends on our training, not only do your staff benefit significantly but it also allows us to sustain the work we do with young people across the UK.

We believe these skills should be accessible to everyone everywhere. Get in touch to find out more!
