Don’t raise your voice: improve your argument! This skills workshop aims to help improve your public speaking and debating skills. You will learn about ways to enhance the clarity of your oral communication, as well as the power of your gesture and body language. You will practise both public speaking and debating through activities designed to get you communicating clearly in both scripted and spontaneous scenarios.
Classroom based courses will be limited to a maximum of 12 pupils. Pupils will be socially distanced within the classroom and will be asked to bring their own personal equipment. Pupils will sit at the same desk each day, and any ICT equipment will be labelled so the pupils use the same device all week. Classrooms will be supplied with antiseptic wipes for any shared equipment.
