Oracy within the Curriculum in Secondary Schools - West Sussex


"Thanks for an informative day - I'm going away with inspiration for my own practice and whole school CPD."

Participant, St Aidan's CofE High School

Improving speaking and listening skills is a key part of overcoming poor literacy, which often holds back pupils at secondary level. This one-day workshop introduces participants to a range of strategies to improve oracy, particularly as a mechanism to improve reading and writing.

The course also includes an introduction to the principles of literacy across the curriculum, which is expanded on in our 3-day secondary literacy CPD.


  • Develop new strategies: participants will explore the different approaches, with a particular focus on literacy in other subjects
  • Evaluate your current provision: resources include a personal audit so you can identify your areas of priority
  • Understand the importance of oracy: explore the role of speaking and listening in academic achievement and social mobility
  • Collaborate with colleagues: share best practice with delegates from a variety of different schools and backgrounds


£175 for the first delegate per school and £125 for every colleague you bring.
