• We Speak works with young people with lower speaking confidence find their authentic voice and use it for life opportunities. We want students to speak comfortably in a range of situations, from participating in class to speaking in a job interview.

     

    We Speak transforms students' speaking confidence. In a programme at Mossbourne Community Academy, 91% of students felt more confident speaking. Students with low speaking confidence experienced a 30-70% rise in their confidence.

     

    The programme involves a visit to a university and a workplace, with the students improving their confidence speaking in different contexts. We train university students to co-deliver the workshops, creating a mentoring relationship through the course of the programme.
