The video below tells us more about ESB's 2021-22 National Impact Report.

Please download the Executive Summary here. ESB would love as many of you as possible to interact with its National Impact Report. So, please do email to receive a full copy of the report and provide us with some feedback. If you would like to be involved in having your learners be part of the dataset, then please also get in touch. It’s crucial to understand that investing in oracy has its dividends and has both an immediate and life-long impact on learners. ESB looks forward to sharing more information about the impact of its qualifications on learners throughout the year, and in the future.

Tina says, “For 70 years, ESB has witnessed the life-long impact of our Accredited oracy qualifications on learners, who from Early Years to their steps into training, employment and continuing education, grow and develop their sense of self, their confidence and their knowledge and skills of how to talk and listen; present to others; use language richly and broadly; persuade; promote; challenge and connect." In 2021 we were part of a report to the Westminster parliament about Oracy. Research outlined in the published report stated how children from low-income homes consistently start school with lower language levels than that of their more advantaged peers, and these gaps widen as children move through school. Of children who persistently experience poverty, 75% arrive at school with a below average level in language development. Around 50% of children in some areas of deprivation begin school with delayed language. Adds Tina, “We’re so excited to announce the launch of our first National Impact Report on a range of our primary and secondary schools who face disadvantage and to whom we offer financial support to enable them to invest in their children and young people’s oracy development."
