• Over 50% of students don't feel confident sharing ideas in class (Millard and Menzies, 2016).


    To make things worse, students from lower income backgrounds are twice as likely to have communication difficulties (Sage, 2006).

    We Speak breaks down this barrier. We help young people with lower speaking confidence find their authentic voice and use it to speak comfortably in a range of situations, from participating in class to speaking in a job interview. Our programme connects them up with universities and employers.


    Would you like your students to feel genuinely comfortable and express themselves in any situation?
