    We Speak provides opportunities for young people to practice speaking, to help close the gap in university applications and employment opportunities for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

     

    On our flagship 8-week enrichment programme, participants:

    • develop speaking confidence so they are more prepared for education and employment opportunities
    • improve self-confidence so they feel positive about their options
    • establish connections with university students, increasing the likelihood of university applications
    • communicate comfortably with employers, increasing confidence around career options.
  • In a programme with Year 12s at Mossbourne Community Academy:

    • Participants experienced an average 30% increase in self-assessed speaking confidence
    • There was a 30%–70% increase for the students who had lower speaking confidence to start with
    • 91% of the participants improved speaking confidence (self assessment)
    • 100% improved speaking confidence (peer assessment)
    • 100% improved speaking confidence (staff assessment)
