The ESU works with a wide range of organisations in partnership to advocate for oracy education and to provide schools with the tools to embed oracy practice into their settings. If you would like to explore partnership opportunities with the ESU please contact email@example.com
The Duke of Edinburgh Award
The ESU is delighted to be an Approved Activity Provider for the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Students are able to use their participation in any of our competitions for their Bronze Award Skills section. Find out more about DofE Award Approved Activity Providers.
Arts Award Supporter
The ESU is a proud Arts Award supporter. Arts Award takes children and young people on a creative journey, exploring the arts world, discovering their potential as artists, developing leadership skills – and gaining a recognised qualification along the way.
Students participating in any of our competitions or workshops can use their creative and performance skills to contribute to their Arts Award qualification. If you have older students supporting your debate, public speaking or performance work they can also have their leadership skills celebrated.
The Chartered College of Teaching
The ESU is delighted to partner with the CCT to deliver the Walter Hines Page scholarship. Entering it’s 100 year anniversary, our Page scholars have the opportunity to research oracy and communication teaching in the United States. Applicants must be either a member of the Chartered College of Teacher or the ESU.
