Our Curriculum Design programme of support will enable you to build an ambitious, context-driven curriculum for oracy which is embedded across different phases and subject disciplines.

Registrations to become a Voice 21 Oracy School this September are now closed. If you would like to join the waiting list, please email  expressing your interest or contact  for further information.

Our Curriculum Design pathway will enable you to design and implement an ambitious, context-driven curriculum for oracy which supports every student to progress in oracy during their time at school.

This pathway contains: 1 online course day: Building Curricula, 1 In-school curriculum consultation day, 1 In-school curriculum design workshop day and a curriculum planning toolkit.

By the end of this pathway, you will notice your students’ confidence increase as they speak to different audiences in a range of contexts and receive high-quality, subject-specific talk across the curriculum.
