Learning outcomes

Given the number of hours a day that you use your voice, it's no wonder that teachers are eight times more likely to suffer from voice-related health conditions than other professions*.

The voice technique taught in this course has been helping speakers and singers get the best out of their voice for over a hundred years. 'Better Voice for Teachers' has been specially adapted to address teachers’ voice problems and help them reduce the strain on their voice.

The vocal techniques that you learn will also offer you other very positive and practical benefits. It will help you speak clearly and confidently and teach you to make yourself heard without shouting.

This will give you a strong advantage in behaviour management and classroom presentation as well as developing skills that will help you in your career progression outside and beyond the classroom.

The Better Voice technique is simple, yet effective, and you can quickly start putting it into practice in the classroom from day one.
