Public Speaking Skills for Teachers & Pupils

Learn invaluable skills to be able to speak with confidence and clarity – in the classroom and beyond.

For Teachers

INSET/CPD Communication Skills Course – helping teachers connect in the classroom and beyond

Teachers are naturally good and experienced speakers, they talk to pupils in the classroom every day. But sometimes when speaking to the whole school, or to a large group of expectant parents, some teachers say they would like to have more impact.

In this interactive course we will learn how we can communicate more effectively on both a personal and a public level. These invaluable life skills can help in situations well beyond the classroom; and teachers can pass on these skills to pupils, both by example and by explanation.

So whether we’re speaking to one parent or the whole school, we make the best connection with them that we possibly can, every time. The consistent feedback from teachers and Head Teachers is that this course is inspiring, practical and hugely enjoyable.

What staff and pupils will learn

  • Dealing with nerves
  • Body language signals
  • Finding your ‘natural’ voice
  • Speaking with confidence
  • Structuring key messages
  • Connecting with our audience

For pupils

How to feel Confident – a one hour talk for Sixth Form pupils

We passionately believe there is a real need for children to be able to communicate clearly and confidently, whether reading aloud in class, speaking from the podium on Speech Day or at a university interview.

In this one hour talk, Robin will share some simple and effective tools that can help pupils appear and feel more confident in pressured situations, like public speaking or university or job interviews.

We will look at nerves, voice, and body language – learning how to tread that fine line between confidence and arrogance.

Confidence is an invaluable life skill that will help pupils in situations well beyond the classroom.

The consistent feedback from pupils, and from Heads of Sixth Form, is that this talk is inspiring, practical and great fun.

For students

Interactive Public Speaking and Interview Skills training – helping them succeed in the real world

We all want to do our best when facing the nerves around public speaking or the worrying prospect of an interview, whether that’s for our next school, university or our first job.

Our group Public Speaking training is great fun. It’s crammed full of specific tips and exercises to help each individual student.

With an interview, we only have one go at it, so 1-1 coaching practice is really helpful. We want pupils to be relaxed and prepared enough to be their very best, every time.

Learning these skills while still at school gives students a firm foundation on which to build as they grow into adulthood, helping them substantially in both their personal and professional lives.

Our experience, enthusiasm and sense of humour, make our sessions memorable, fun and above all, really effective.
