Debating sessions take place in the council chamber at Knowle and have proved enlightening and challenging to students of all ages. We work together with the school or college to find the most topical and contentious subject for debate.

Alternatively, students could follow an agenda similar to one that our councillors would use - taking them through a number of items that would be of interest to them and generate debate. Agendas with reports would be sent to the students beforehand to allow them to prepare. We could ask councillors to sit among students to help aid the debate and bring in a full range of points of view. The sessions would last approximately one hour.
