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 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.
In the extraordinary times we live in, Wheeler Education is here to bring the world to teens – and teens to the world. 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.
As the series unfolds, we’ll gather useful information for young people on this page. So check back, explore upcoming events, or sign up to our Wheeler Education mailing list to receive the latest news about programming and events.
