"I got my confidence for Public Speaking at my primary school"
Let this be the case for every child in your school
The Mighty Oak Mission
We believe that every child should have the opportunity to become a confident speaker, hold a commanding presence and retain this skill for life.
The aim of The Mighty Oak® Public Speaking Programme is that every pupil leaving school will know how to address an audience in a confident, articulate manner, using all their public speaking tools.
The focus is on delivery (how we say it) and less on content (what we say). To that end, we help the pupils with their words, freeing them up to work on delivery without having to think about creating content.
Public speaking skills are part of the essential knowledge children need to be educated citizens. This feeds into Educational Authority frameworks which require schools to develop cultural capital.
We provide public speaking programmes for primary, secondary and third level students..
These programmes develop skills which will be used for life.
We teach your teachers how to incorporate these programmes into the very heart of school life. Every assembly, every performance, every communication, every day. Your pupils will know only one way to speak in public - with a strong, articulate voice and a commanding presence. We start the programmes at 6yrs old so that by the end of primary school, the pupils are confident, articulate speakers.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“We are very much enjoying the programme so far in Year 4, the children really benefit from the video lessons. We've just finished lesson 5, and hope to finish the last lesson very soon. We will then start to focus on the competition and picking the children for each role. .
