Better Voice part one and two

As a teacher, one of the main assets you rely on is your voice. It can help you hold your pupils' attention and capture their imagination, and is a vital tool in helping you manage classroom behaviour.

Better Voice for Teachers is a dynamic, easy-to-follow online course specially designed to enhance the capabilities of your speaking voice and deliver practical benefits in the classroom. It’s designed to enable you to speak clearly, confidently and authoritatively, to make yourself heard without shouting, and to use your voice continuously and effectively without any strain on your throat.

The course is divided into two parts. Part One introduces you to the Better Voice technique and its beneficial use in your day-to-day teaching life. Part Two helps you build on that foundation to discover your voice’s previously unrevealed potential.

Each part of the course uses short films to demonstrate the Better Voice technique and present the simple vocal exercises. At every stage there are step-by-step pointers and clear progress indicators.

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*.
