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.
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.

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:
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.
