Workshops for Young People

If teachers are not responsible for the full education of our kids, and so many families do not give them the extra attention they deserve, what other options do we have to help kids with extra-curricular fields?

Each family has an extremely different culture and expectation from education.

One family will come up to you and say their kid is not doing great, and that you, as the educator, should stay on top more.

Another family will not even care to listen to your recommendations about their kid and tell you to deal with it because it’s your job.

We know teachers are not experts at many fields and can’t be faulted, but unfortunately we cannot expect families to know better to cover exactly those missing gaps.

We fill the gap on aspects of education that are not easy to tackle at school, and that are not commonly solved at home either.

Talking about racism, gender and what it means to be homeless, about how to build resilience and look at the world from a different perspective. 

We deliver these nuggets of experience in the form of workshops for young people.

If you’ve tried telling a kid to read more, you know how far that will go.

We show by example. We bring you people that live what they tell. Their own story is what we use to inspire young people, by showing them what becomes of overcoming life challenges.

Here’s how it works for you (and specially your pupils)

Real life examples

We won’t bring a manual or a movie. There are no “experts”. We bring real people, our ambassadors. Students will learn about their experiences first hand, from the people who have lived them.


and empowerment of young people. We deliver stories that break prejudices of any kind. Your students will see how everyone can be a leader and inspire others.

The price

Our workshops are bespoke and priced according to your needs, the length of delivery, the amount of time it takes to prepare the workshops and how many people we are delivering the session for.

On or off

We always prefer offline physical feedback with people, but we can do it online if you prefer.

Age and number

From Key Stage 1 all the way through to college students. From small classes of under 15 people to whole schools of over 1000 people, in an assembly format.

No limits

We aim to show children that there is no glass ceiling. They can be whoever they want to be and our aim is to speak directly to every student’s potential.


Growing up isn’t easy, especially in the era of social media and so much social unrest. We teach students ways to overcome social and emotional obstacles which will increase their overall wellbeing.


We deliver strategies for overcoming obstacles and dealing with challenging times. The students will meet extraordinary people with extraordinary lives. None of them will leave any of them (or you) indifferent.

Key competencies

such as self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making.


Tales to Inspire has built bridges with various charities and organisations throughout the country, who are currently taking action against social injustices, and we want to share these connections with you.


Encourage a connection to their own story and the stories of others by increasing empathy and understanding of others.

There’s something you must know. All of us, Krish, the team, and all of our ambassadors, we are not business people. That doesn’t mean we aren’t professional, don’t get it wrong. What I mean is that you shouldn’t expect us wearing suits, prominent handshakes and “we talk, everyone listen”.

With that said, if you want to have a true impact on young people, and leave everyone impressed on the way out, this is a very good investment.

Answer these initial questions to get in touch and start arranging things together
Krish and Josh, led the workshop with such professionalism, care and lifelong experiences that the children in the cohort were taken away by.

Some teachers have these questions

We will discuss your needs over email first.

You will decide on the topics you’re interested into, the length of the workshop, and preferred dates.

With that we’ll prepare a proposal, including which ambassadors and team members will attend on the day and send it to you on a deck in a PDF file, along with a quote for the work.

From here, we can arrange a short call to solve last questions.

You get approval for the work.

We attend on the day, deliver the workshop, and leave.

All of our workshops are delivered by our Ambassadors who have shared their story with Tales to Inspire.

Real-life people with lived experience to ensure real-life outcomes of the subject area that they are delivering on.

Yes, all of them, and we will provide DBS certificates to schools prior to delivery.

No. Tales to Inspire is a social enterprise/community interest company. This means that we are a not-for profit organisation with all profits going back in to our social mission: impacting a diverse array of communities whilst inspiring others that there is nothing that they cannot breakthrough.

We have provided workshops focusing on:

  • Mental health and wellbeing
  • Climate action
  • Disability awareness
  • Gender and sexuality
  • Refugee awareness
  • Homelessness

All our workshops are bespoke therefore if you have a particular interest in a workshop on a more unique social justice issue, please get in touch.

We are based in Greater Manchester. However, our facilitators are based around the country which means that we can provide bespoke workshops for you in a variety of locations.

We can arrange a series of workshops for your school, however it all depends on what it is that you are looking for and how best we can support.

Our aim isn’t to just turn up and be done. We want to leave a lasting impact and exceed all expectations and you may feel that a series of workshops may work better for your needs.
