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.
Leaving school to enter the world of work, further training or education is both an exciting and daunting time. The prospect of independence is often overwhelming. Talk About The Future supports students preparing to leave school or college by developing the competencies needed to take this next step with confidence and a positive mindset. This school workshop contains meaningful activities meeting the Gatsby Benchmarks.
These workshops are aimed at students who are either in their final year of secondary school or in Sixth Form, with a focus on improving their connections with employers, colleges and universities. At the end of this workshop students will be able to keep their workbook which will assist them in creating their first CV, completing their UCAS application and preparing for upcoming interviews.
In addition, these sessions provide students with core Speaking and Listening skills, and reflect on how they are developing Aiming High skills to identify their own strengths and take positive approaches to new challenges. The Talk About The Future 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.
