Enhancing Education Through The Power Of Digital News Media.

Young people are the leaders and decision makers of tomorrow, and in changing times, it has perhaps never been more important to help young people learn more about politics. Find out how our engaging and understandable content can help your students discover more about how politics works and how it is impacting all our lives.

Young People & Politics

Helping young people understand politics is arguably more important than ever. Politics impacts all of us, everyday, often in small ways we don't even realise. In recent times, politics and political decisions have been impacting us more and more - yet at the same time, politics can quickly become confusing and difficult to understand.

At The Speaker, we're making politics news easier to understand and helping the next generation understand how politics works, how it impacts us and how we can all get involved. 

Teaching young people about politics and how the world works is important - not only because it is a key part of the Citizenship curriculum in schools. Today's young people are the leaders and decision-makers of tomorrow. Large amounts of the next generation want to stand up and make their voices heard, so impartial, understandable education about politics really can help prepare today's young people for the future.
