    I really want to get involved with public speaking competitions as I know it is something I will enjoy and is also an extra bonus to have on my CV, but my school doesn't take part in things like that so I want to know if there are any individual competitions out there.


    Just so you know, I am 14 and at the end of year 9.


    Thank you!

    PS. I know this isn't a debate as such but it is still 'educational' which is why I have put this thread in this topic.

    When i was a bit older than you, i had the opportunity to take part in this so maybe try and get involved in that too? Great workshop improves both speaking and listening skills. Then a bit of competition on top is also good, i was a finalist. Communication skills are needed for everything these days, if you're good at it then your chances of getting employed increases. So give that a go!
