The Commission on the Future of Oracy Education in England will examine the vital skills of speaking and listening at a time of unprecedented technological and social change.


The Commission responds to the growing recognition of the importance of spoken language to children’s learning and life chances and increasing evidence and concern as to the impact of the inconsistency, quality and accessibility of oracy education in schools across England.


From March - September 2024, the Commission will shape recommendations to lead to a systemic shift in access to oracy education in England.
