Case Study:

Articulate Oracy Workshop at Eggbuckland Community College

Case study – Articulate Oracy Workshop – February 2024

We return to Eggbuckland Community College to deliver the Articulate Oracy Workshop for NSSW with Kate as their tutor. After a week’s support and mentoring the students take an oracy assessment with ESB to showcase what they have learnt to do. Kate said “The confidence change from Monday to Friday is amazing. They get so much pride from the programme”.

Each student learns a poem or prose off-by-heart and recites it in front of the group. This can a big challenge for the underconfident as well as doing it in front of your peers – peer fear! This is a real phenomenon and we all can get super nervous around people of equal status. It is actually harder to do this as psychologically we think that they are more likely to know that we are faking confidence or think that they are going to reveal something about us that is not welcomed…..but in reality this does not happen and we survive.

Oracy workshop success

Students are proud to have achieved success in oracy workshop and here are some of the comments to show how they feel.

“I’m really shy so it was hard for me at first, but Kate showed me how to step out of my comfort zone and reassured me that it would be all okay, and it was!”

“At the beginning I felt nervous but now I feel so much more confident in speaking”

Our tutors are carefully selected to work with students and pupils to teach to our ethos and multi-method approach. We are proud of what they achieve and when they return as freelance teachers to us again and again it is testament to the work that they do.
