    1. Hi Libo,

      Academy participants are selected from the best development speakers at the annual National Schools Debating Championships. To attend this competition you must first be selected as a speaker for your provincial teams.

      I hope this has clarified the process.


  1. Hai,My name is Ayanda Ntsini and was selected for the academy team*reserve*.I was therefore wondering what this means for me.Will I be able to attend the academy since I don’t form part of the twelfe speakers?.Thank you

  2. Hi Devi

    How do I coach my 2 boys and 2 nephews to become potential international debators? Please kindly assist me. Age 9,9,10 and 11 years


    1. Hi Dr Ismail,
      I am not aware of any coaching opportunities for learners of pre-high school age. Perhaps look at getting a private coach? You can reach out to your local provincial board for assistance with that!

    2. Good Day Dr Ismail,

      The Wits Debating Union is working towards establishing a Wits Debating Academy in the upcoming year. If you are still looking for a coach for you little ones, you might want to consider one of our coaches who has begun coaching primary school learners; he seems to work well with the kids.

      contact me on so that I can forward you more information. Hope to hear from you soon.
