Provincial and Local Debating

Debating Resources

  • Debateable, a resource-rich website specialising in World Schools Style debating
  • ACT Debating Online, the website of the Australian Capital Territory Debating Union. This debating association practices two different styles of debating, British Parliamentary (which is used by South African university speakers) and Australian Style (which is similar to World Schools Style, except there are no reply speakers). Much of the training material is applicable to any debating format.
  • Debate Central Video Training, which features video workshops about content areas, debate techniques, training instruction, and sample debates.
  • Debate Central Audio Training, which features much of the content on the previous page in a low-bandwidth audio-only format.

    1. Hi Zandile,

      Of course we can – but it would help if you let us know where you are, so we can direct you to programmes running in your area, if there are any.
