Voice 21 is the national oracy education charity. They exist to enable teachers and schools to provide a high quality oracy education so that all young people can find their voice for success in school and life.
They achieve this by delivering teacher development and school improvement programmes, promoting the impact of oracy on student outcomes and building a movement for change.
Every year they work with thousands of teachers and hundreds of schools across the UK.
There is much that can be learnt from studying lessons, noticing teaching decisions and considering the impact of these decision on learners. For new teachers, the study of a lesson can be enhanced by listening to experienced teachers discussing their observations and then reflecting on this discussion.
These days will provide NQTs with an opportunity to observe a lesson alongside experienced teachers, listen to the teachers discuss their observations of the lesson and then discuss their own observations with peers. It is an opportunity to consider the intention, implementation and impact of teaching within a single lesson.
EAL learners will need significant and intensive catch-up support to close an attainment gap that has been intensified by the national Covid-19 lockdown. They may have had a limited or lack of exposure to a broad range of English language, including the academic language needed to be successful across the curriculum.
When teaching pupils with English as an additional language, building vocabulary is key to progressing their level of English in all skills. Our keynote speaker, Dr Victoria Murphy, will talk about the importance of addressing the EAL Word Gap.
Join us for this year’s English as an additional language Conference for brilliant presenters and workshop leaders. The conference will include stimulating presentations on a combination of research-based best practices and approaches, as well as opportunities for workshops and discussions.
