Education has always been at the core of George the Poet's work. In 2012 he delivered poetry workshops to disadvantaged young people, after winning a social enterprise competition called "The Stake", organised by Barclay's and Channel 4. The aim of the workshops was to teach participants the technique of converting study notes into poems - a skill developed by George himself, which contributed to his own educational success.
Like all other areas of George's career, these workshops have since evolved with his profile. He is now a regular school speaker, delivering workshops and presentations on topics such as:
- GCSE/A Level Choices
- University/Oxbridge Applications
- English in Context (Lit & Lang)
- Sociology in Context
- The Value of the Arts
- The Value of Creativity
- The Value of Storytelling
- Social Awareness & Political Engagement
- Careers Advice
- The Entertainment Business
