Ready to become an International Oracy Leader?

Building on the success of our pilot programme in 2021, we are delighted to launch our second International Oracy Leaders programme.

Through our work with schools over the last five years, we have learned the importance of dedicated leadership for oracy within a school. In order to provide a high-quality oracy education for all students, schools must prioritise oracy teaching and learning, providing staff with professional development and support in order to upskill them in this important area of learning. 

Our International Oracy Leaders Programme is based on the successful National Oracy Leaders Programme we ran in conjunction with Cambridge University between 2017 and 2020.

Who is the programme for?



The programme is for teachers and school leaders in schools outside of the UK who wish to develop an in-depth understanding of oracy, engaging with the latest research and applying this in practice in order to develop their own and others’ practice. Participants will also explore what it means to value oracy across a whole school, becoming familiar with theories of whole-school change to ensure they are able to make a sustained and long-lasting impact.


What to expect

  • Online Development Days: Led by one of our leading oracy consultants, these detailed sessions cover everything you need to know to sharpen your oracy practice.
  • 1:1 consultancy session: One-to-one support from an oracy consultant following your first two sessions to help facilitate implementation of learning.
