Part of a group of 8 or more schools? Want a bespoke oracy project for your schools? Become one of our next ‘Voice Areas’!

Working with Voice 21, your group of schools will all become Voice 21 Oracy Schools and receive our full blend of professional development and consultancy like all other Voice 21 Oracy Schools nationwide, but they will also receive additional, bespoke support from us.

All the participating schools will become Voice 21 Oracy Schools and receive the full blend of professional development, consultancy and online learning of our membership, but they will also receive additional, bespoke support from us.


Key outcomes and benefits of being a Group Area:
  • Development days arranged in conjunction with yourself, at locations and on dates of your schools’ convenience
  • Discounts for signing up as a group (depending on the number of participating schools)
  • Regular, bespoke events for your group of schools, including a launch webinar and an end of project impact showcase
  • A Voice 21 expert speaking at one event of your choice per year to share expert oracy practice and news of the project
  • Benchmarking reports collating data and progress for your group as a whole at the start and end of the project
  • Exclusive branding and publicity
  • A dedicated space on our online learning hub (the Voice 21 Exchange) for your schools, for teachers from all participating schools to share practice and resources to sustain momentum across the group.
  • Dashboards to monitor your schools’ progress throughout the project, showing how each school is getting on
  • A dedicated relationship manager at Voice 21 to oversee the project and arrange communications and logistics with you and your schools
  • Termly meetings to monitor progress of all participating schools
You can also tailor the project by adding the extra elements below to support your priorities:

Additional development days on a range of specific topics, such as oracy and vocabulary, speechmaking, debate, oracy for senior leaders, engaging parents and carers with oracy development and an introduction to oracy for NQTs/RQTs

Network days – planning sessions facilitated by Voice 21 around specific themes related to oracy, according to your priorities

Additional in-school consultancy days for some or all of your schools

Additional Oracy Champions on top of the two staff places included in the core membership.*

(*Please note these elements come at an additional cost)

Like all other Voice 21 Oracy Schools, the three progressive memberships stages (each typically lasting for a year) are:

Stage 1

Build the foundations of oracy teaching and learning in the classrooms across your schools through the development of teacher practice

Stage 1 includes two members of staff attending three days of professional development.

Stage 2
