Inspirational Virtual Talks help students fire their ambition

Here at Harris Academy Rainham, we’re always looking for new and innovative ways to give hard to reach students access to top opportunities.

As part of that effort we are delighted to recommend a series of virtual talks prodcued by the Speakers for Schools Inspiration Programme which provides a network of today’s most inspiring figures across business, arts, politics and more donating their time to help inspire students to fuel their ambition. 

The SFS VTalks programme consists of a timetable of curated content that will be livestreamed to young people studying at home and those still attending school. For the remainder of this academic year, SFS will curate 2 talks per day that young people can access and engage with speakers by asking questions – talks will take place at 10.00 and 14.00, Monday to Friday.

HOW TO JOIN THE VTALKS

  • Join 10 minutes before the VTALK to be ready
