Speakers for Schools

Speakers for Schools was founded in 2010 by ITV’s Political Editor Robert Peston with a mission to help level the playing field for young people of all backgrounds. The charity’s aim is to end educational inequality by giving all young people access to the same prestigious networks available to the top fee-paying schools in the UK.

It provides talks from influential figures as well as work experiences linking state school students to industry-leading companies and networked support partners. The charity has since expanded its services to include the Youth Card, a personalised app that brings the world of curated discounts and life-preparing opportunities to the fingertips of young people across the UK.
