Course Overview

This two-day course for students with some debating experience allows them to consolidate their knowledge, hone their debating skills and gain exposure to interesting and pertinent topics. The course is modular in nature, and the coach picks and chooses the most appropriate theory sessions to suit the group before them.

As with all of our programs, class sizes are kept small to ensure that students have ample opportunity to practice their skills and to receive regular individualised feedback from one of our experienced coaches.


Experience Levels

Our Hawks Debating course is a continuers program.

It is designed for students that:

  • are already part of their school’s debating team, and have been taking part in debating training at their school for at least six months;
  • have previously attended our Hummingbirds Debating course; or
  • have attended Hawks Debating course previously, and want to come back for some more practice!

If your child doesn’t have much experience, we would recommend they undertake our Hummingbirds Debating course. If in doubt, please get in touch and we’d be more than happy to discuss which course is most appropriate for your child!


Main Objectives

Over the duration of this course, students will:

  • be given multiple opportunities to practice their skills over various practice debates;
  • receive personal feedback from an experienced coach that can be applied in the following debate; and
  • have exposure to various concepts and ideas with the view to improving their understanding of debating as a whole.


Should I repeat the Hawks Debating program?

The Hawks Debating program is designed so it can be completed again and again.

The content of our Hawks Debating course changes from holiday to holiday to ensure that no two courses are the same. Our experienced coaches tailor the material to the individual circumstances of the students who enrol in any given holiday, and make sure that everyone gets the most out of the program.

As such, students will gain some new insights and skills every time they undertake this course!
