Talk The Talk are a charity providing staff and students with a range of practical oracy workshops, all delivered by professional experts and qualified teachers, especially trained in the use of oracy as an educational tool.

Voicing an opinion in a group situation can often be intimidating. What will others think of what you have to say? Talk About Communication Plus is an engaging oracy workshop that focuses on Group Talk, Debating, Negotiation and Listening Skills, providing your students with practical opportunities to put these to the test.  This workshop is aimed at secondary school students – with a focus on ‘group talk’ – those real situations in life where we find ourselves in meetings or group discussions.

These full-day workshops provide each student with the opportunity to speak in front of their peers, a minimum of three times, while learning core components around visual, vocal and verbal communication.  In addition, these sessions provide students with core Speaking and Listening skills, which can be used in all lessons across the curriculum. Through developing these oracy skills, students also reflect on how they are developing Aiming High skills to identify their own strengths and take positive approaches to new challenges.

The Talk About Communication Plus workshops capture the impact on students’ skill development, through self-assessment and teacher narrative feedback, giving learners the opportunity to reflect on their progress and how they will continue to build these skills in other areas.
