SCT has three core programmes, the first focused on creating a national network of local Speakers' Corner projects in the UK, the second on undertaking initiatives overseas and the third on developing educational resources designed to encourage and enable people to express their ideas and opinions in public.

SCT has formed a number of partnerships with major organisations which enable it to pursue projects which it could not undertake alone. It has, for example, worked with the Southbank Centre on the production of Speaking Out, a download introducing the basic skills required for confident speaking in public, and with Central St Martins College of Art and Design on the creation of prototype Speakers’ Corners.More
Youth Amplified is free to use and features videos, animations and downloadable guides for teachers and youth workers designed to help 11-18 year-olds develop effective speaking and listening skills and confidence in using them.
The website is the outcome of a nine month project by SCT and the University of Leeds supported by the BAFTA-winning digital design agency Bold Creative and funded buy the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. You can access Youth Amplified here.
SCT is a small and cost-efficient registered charity with very low overheads. Since we were formed in 2007, we have successfully extended the scope and reach of our work through partnership and collaboration rather than by increasing our own size and costs. That remains our strategy.
But like any other charity we do have to meet our modest costs and your support would be very much appreciated.
