Over the last few weeks, The Leigh UTC’s year 11 students have been preparing for their upcoming speaking and listening exams. All students are aiming for Merit and Distinction and are currently busy choosing topics that inspire and excite them.
At the Leigh UTC we realise that communication is the most important skill for success, and we seek to particularly develop our students’ confidence and determination in how they present themselves verbally, in front of their peers, teachers and visitors to our UTC. After all, ‘every day is an interview’.
We would like to thank Marc Lemezma and Richard Murray for contextualising this learning so that students see this experience as a real-world opportunity, not just another exam.
