Innovative Whole Year Approach
Talk The Talk work with whole year groups as well as targeting individual classes because peer support is essential to embedding long-term oracy benefits and cultural change.
Individual Student Support
Students receive the support, stretch and challenge they need to flourish with a 1:30 trainer to student ratio in our oracy workshops.
A Long-Term Intervention
A package of resources and follow-up support to ensure sustained benefit from our workshops.
External evaluation adds reassurances that your students receive maximum impact from their workshops.
A Popular Oracy Intervention Across The UK
We’re one of England and Wales most popular providers of oracy intervention – working directly with 33,000 students in 256 Secondary schools in 2021/22.
Professor John MacBeath, University of Cambridge:
“The evidence points very persuasively to a highly successful intervention, in particular for shy and reticent students, helping to increase their skills and confidence.”
“Wow! Yet another outstanding day delivered by Talk The Talk. Never tire of seeing these confident young adults standing up and talking about something that matters to them!”
“A well delivered session that has visibly improved my tutor group’s confidence. Students went home buzzing at the end of their first day at school. We have booked the sessions again for next year.”
“Have to say, if anyone had told me at the start of the day, that the students would produce speeches of the quality they did, just five hours later, I’d have said they were delusional…! Phenomenal results!”
“Lovely manner with the students, building their confidence and resilience effectively. Students engaged in all activities and a positive learning environment throughout.”
“The training was perfectly pitched for the age of our students and it enabled all students to progress significantly with their ability to construct and present to an audience effectively. Everyone from the most confident through to the most anxious absolutely thrived.”
“Students are highly engaged and are learning a lot of good skills. Pace is good and the sessions progress well. The trainer is obviously vastly experienced with training school children. Excellent!”
“The CPD delivered was outstanding. Many teachers felt it was one of the best inset days we’ve had and they feel great motivation as a result of the tips and guidance.”
