"Together we can ensure a clear, articulate voice for the fine minds of the future"
The Mighty Oak Mission
We believe that every child should have the opportunity to become a confident speaker with a commanding presence.
The aim of The Mighty Oak® Public Speaking Programmes is that every pupil leaving school will know how to address an audience using all their public speaking tools.
The focus is on delivery and less on what to say. To that end, we give the pupils the 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 and secondary schools.
These programmes develop skills which pupils will carry 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, commanding presence. We start the programmes at 6yrs old so that by 15yrs old 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. .
