Voice 21 & Impetus
Our partnership with Impetus has been transformational in unlocking our potential and supporting us to understand how we can more effectively achieve our impact. They've made a difference in so many areas of the organisation already and we're excited about what we can achieve together in the future
– Beccy Earnshaw, CEO, Voice 21
The need: Young people from disadvantaged backgrounds are significantly more likely to suffer from poor oracy skills from an early age, compared to their peers, which puts them at greater risk of getting no qualifications and failing to get into work or training.
Our charity partner: Voice21 runs a variety of oracy training programmes for teachers and schools. They support teachers to become expert oracy practitioners and provide deep support to individual schools to embed oracy in the curriculum.
Our impact: We’ve worked with Voice21 to make them stronger and able to deliver better results. They have exceeded their targets for 2021 and are reaching young people from disadvantaged backgrounds across 607 schools across the country.
