Description

What is Talk about Talk Secondary?

Talk about Talk Secondary is an evidenced targeted intervention that helps students aged 14 to 18 with poor communication skills to be ready for the work place. The programme consists of a series of 13 fully planned one-hour lessons delivered by trained teaching or support staff.

How will students improve their communication skills for the workplace?

Students who are selected to take part in the intervention will learn and practice the communication skills that support other ‘soft’ employability skills such as team working, time management and problem-solving.

Students work towards co-delivering workshops about communication skills to an audience in their school and then to local businesses. Workshops help students apply these skills and a range of tools help them reflect on their progress throughout the lessons.

Who is Talk about Talk Secondary training for?

The training is suitable for Teachers, Teaching Assistants and Special Educational Needs Coordinators who will deliver the programme.

The one-day training course provides background on speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) as well as providing full details and materials to deliver the lessons and workshops.

The training is delivered on-site in your school. Schools training small numbers of staff may wish to consider joining with other schools locally to share the cost.

What does Talk about Talk Secondary include?

Once you have booked onto the training course, you will receive the following materials; these are at an additional cost of £250 per person to be bought directly from ICAN. Details will be sent once booking confirmed.

  • An intervention manual containing detailed lesson plans and resources required
  • Printed student workbooks to help students reflect on and apply the skills they are learning
  • Access to the Talk for Work Profile where you can monitor student progress and print reports
  • Online presentations and specifically designed films to support all lessons
  • Additional online materials to organise and run the communication workshops for audiences
