How coaches find working with SSA

I really enjoy working with Speaking Schools Australasia. I’ve found that the environment is amazing. Everyone is really kind and I’ve made friends for life as well. You’ll learn so much from the other coaches who have way more experience than you and it makes you a better coach.

Niki Nojoumian SSA Coach

I love working with SSA. It’s a really positive program. It’s really kid-focused, making sure the kids have a great time and making sure we can celebrate debating as much as they learn things about the world and how to debate.

Brendan Winters SSA Coach

Working at SSA is an awesome experience. Even though I’m new, I’ve already gained a lot of new skills I feel. Just being able to speak in front of a class of kids. It’s very different to speaking to people of your own age. I think it's definitely a different experience and one that really opens your mind and broadens your horizons.
