Talking Partners

​Develop confidence and competency speaking and listening

Talking Partners is a structured language programme designed to raise levels of achievement by improving pupil’s speaking and listening skills.
By providing opportunities to practise target language through a range of focused activities, pupils develop their independent skills to become good communicators.
Pupils become more users of English as they are encouraged to listen actively and talk for a range of purposes.
We offer:
  • talkingpartners@primary: For pupils aged from 4 to 11.
  • talkingpartners@secondary: For KS3/4  pupils.
The programme draws particular attention to the links between oracy and the demands of the secondary curriculum.



Talking Partners:
  • is designed to be delivered by an experienced Teaching Assistant* (working at level 3 or above) and Learning Mentors;
  • is delivered under the guidance of a teacher who has been trained in the programme;
  • is a short term intervention strategy – 10 week programme;
  • accelerates learning and results in increased independence in speaking and listening;
  • has an emphasis on praise, a positive environment and specific prompts to extend learning.
