Educational Workshops

We provide a range of workshops for 14-19 year olds who are ready to move into the next important stage of their lives. White Chalk workshops are practical, creative, factual and stimulating. Our research shows that students want information, knowledge and guidance. Therefore our workshops have been designed using focus groups, surveys and questionnaires to gain the right information for the end users.

We cover the following workshops:
