Competitive training workshops are aimed at members who want to represent the Union at tournaments. EUDU hosts some of the best debaters in the UK and Europe, and these workshops are vital for development within the union.
The format is similar to our regular workshops progamme, however CT provides more in-depth analysis of relevant topics and focuses on competitive argumentation skills. Speeches are 7 minutes long, complying with competition standards. You are required to attend at least 3 Monday workshops or a university level competition before joining CT.
CT will be coordinated by Jamie Beverstock.
