Our partner, Plymouth Teaching School Alliance (PTSA) and SWIFT will be working with Devon Local Authority to deliver The Plymouth Oracy Project to primary schools in Devon, Plymouth and Torbay for the next academic year.
This is a funded Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme supported by a range of high-quality resources. Delivered by PTSA-accredited trainers, it builds on the strong impact measures achieved in Plymouth schools, and numerous Devon and Somerset cohorts since September 2019.
“High quality of delivery and resources has given participants confidence to lead Oracy within their schools.”
