Wheeler Education is here to bring the world to teens – and teens to the world.
Being a teenager is all about change. Adolescence is when most of us form a sense of the world, try to find our place in it and (hopefully) have some fun along the way. Beyond what we learn at school, some of our most valuable learning happens when we discover the communities and ideas that connect us.
Wheeler Education encourages creativity and critical thinking on a range of issues. Our programme offers a range of events that prioritises the voices and experiences of young people – on the stage, and off. In our dynamic and interactive events, we’ll hear from young people about the challenges facing them right now, we’ll equip them with the skills they need to participate in important public conversations and, most of all, we’ll celebrate their passions, their ideas, and their stories.
Our professional development series for educators – Teens Talk… – reframes what it means to teach and to listen. And our incursion workshops bring writers and thinkers into schools to share their talents and build skills and confidence. Learn more about our 2023 workshops here.
