Public Speaking Workshop for Most Able Students

Lamda 2

Last week, LAMDA (The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) came into HBAED to deliver the first of a two part workshop to year 11 students from both our Academy and Harris Girls’ Academy East Dulwich.

The session focused on providing Most Able students with an opportunity to experience corporate-level training for public speaking and interview technique.

The students from both academies were engaged from the beginning and worked collaboratively and effectively throughout the session.

The students were put on the spot and asked to give short speeches on their interests. They were then given feedback on various attributes that employers and universities look for, such as body language, enunciation and voice projection.

The session also gave students the opportunity to experience skills training to prepare them for such situations in their upcoming future.

Lamda 1

The aim of the two-part workshop is to equip students with the social skills and independence needed to prove, through confident speaking, that they are a valuable asset with the attributes needed to be successful in further education and employment.

The students have really developed an understanding of how important it is to have that double advantage of high academic achievement coupled with confident speaking skills to highlight those attributes that would make them successful.

“I had no idea that universities looked for this. I am very thankful to have this opportunity to practice and prove my ability to speak confidently so that I can show how valuable I would be as a student at my chosen university.” Matthew, year 11

“They were a really bright and engaged group of students, who really got involved. What a pleasure to work with, I will look forward to our second workshop.” Adam, LAMDA
