Effectively embed oracy in your classroom practice 

The roots of a high quality oracy education are in the classroom. Teachers are those best placed to develop their students’ capacity to discuss, deliberate and reason effectively.

Our National Oracy Pioneers programme supports teachers to become expert oracy practitioners ready to empower their students to find their voice for success in the classroom and beyond.

As an Oracy Pioneer, you will:

  • Engage critically with the research surrounding good practice in oracy teaching and learning
  • Equip your teachers to use purposeful talk to drive learning across the curriculum, deepening students’ knowledge, understanding and reasoning
  • Build a whole-school culture which values and celebrates oracy, in classrooms and beyond
  • Strengthen specialist leadership for oracy in your school

This programme is for you if:

  • You are a primary or secondary teacher passionate about oracy and the difference it could make to the pupils you teach.
  • You want to become an expert oracy practitioner, with a specialism in this exciting area of pedagogy.
  • You want to join a movement to raise the status of oracy in schools across the UK.
