Speak for change inquiry

The Oracy All-Party Parliamentary Group launched the Speak for Change inquiry to improve oracy education in evry school. There is a growing consensus across society including employers, teachers, and parents, as to the importance of oracy in education. However, members of the Oracy APPG are concerned that oracy is being undervalued and overlooked within schools, denying too many children and young people the opportunity to develop these vital skills and hampering social mobility, educational achievement, wellbeing and future employability. This inquiry is investigating the current provision of oracy education in the UK, assess the value and impact of oracy education and identify the barriers to children accessing and receiving quality oracy education.
