Free online seminar – unlock the power of oracy in education

Tuesday 25th June 2024

We know that oracy improves children’s cognitive development and learning in schools and that it helps to prepare children for participation in the wider world. We know it has been proven to boost social emotional skills including increased self-esteem and confidence.

  • What we mean by oracy & why it matters
  • How oracy can enable our young people to flourish in an age of machine learning and globalisation
  • How learning, teaching and assessment can be reshaped to support oracy
  • Case studies of success & practical guidance for how you can promote oracy within your school.
