The new Virtual Penguin Talks series, in partnership with Speakers for Schools, will focus on issues which matter most to young people right now, including how to manage anxiety and how prepare for the future world of work. Starting on Thursday 30 April at 10:00am, weekly talks from our authors will be streamed live to Penguin Platform’s Youtube channel and they join Speakers for Schools series of twice daily Virtual Talks.

Penguin Talks teaching resources

Penguin Talks, in partnership with Speakers for School, equip young people for the future by introducing a new generation of readers to new ideas and perspectives, and broadening their understanding of issues which speakers feel to be particularly prevalent for this generation. 

Teaching resources for Key Stages 3-5 have been created for each talk and cover topics across the Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) curriculum. All resources are free to download and link directly to the PSHE Association Programme of Study for PSHE education, to support your teaching of Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education.

The resources include clips of the talks, lesson plans, lesson slides and activity sheets, with challenge questions for every activity. Further talks and resources are released throughout the school year.
