International Oracy Teacher Award

The International Oracy Teacher Award is currently undergoing a review, and we aim to provide more information on the refreshed format of this in the summer of 2023.

In brief

The English-Speaking Union’s International Oracy Teacher Award is the only award of its kind which recognises excellence and outreach in oracy education across the globe. If you teach English to children between the ages of five and 18, this is your chance to tell the world about the work you do, and the difference it makes. We encourage individual teachers to apply (with a supporting reference from your local international ESU) and we also invite International ESUs to promote the competition among their networks.

The success of oracy education depends on the efforts and expertise of dedicated, knowledgeable teachers. It is heart-warming to hear how entrants have helped young people who have not had the benefit of a privileged social upbringing to find their voices and use them to good effect
