  1. I the Head of Widening Horizons and am interested in establishing a TED talk club however I am not sure how to go about doing this (in particular good talks to start off the club with particularly as this is a set up my students will not have experienced before).

    My students are aged 11 to 18 from an area of high social deprivation.

    Could I have any resources suitable forwarded to me?

    Many thanks
