STUDENTS COMPLETE THE SPEAK OUT CHALLENGE WORKSHOP

05 May 2023  |  Jill Lundberg  |  Posted in:

Sixty students attended a day-long workshop to enhance their communication skills. The Year 10 students took part in the ‘Speak Out’ challenge to learn how to speak in front of people and develop their communication skills and confidence.

The students were split into two groups and carried out a range of interactive and hands-on activities to boost their confidence and improve their ability to express themselves verbally.  The students worked on a topic they felt passionate about and they were all able to deliver a speech to their group.

The event was delivered by Speakers Trust who have over 15 years of experience in providing high quality, professionally delivered workshops and educational resources on public speaking and communications skills. They work with one in every five state secondary schools in England plus youth organisations across the UK.

Clare Clish, Head of Year 10, said: “We have received some really positive feedback from the students who attended the ‘Speak Out’ workshop. Many of them said they had to step out of their comfort zone but with the coaching from the workshop leader coupled with the support of their peers they all delivered their speeches and felt that their confidence and communication skills had been strengthened.”
