International Teacher Award

Category: Information, International Teacher Award

International Teacher Award 

Oracy in Education 

 

Notes for applicants and nominating ESUs 

About 

The English-Speaking Union is an international membership organisation and educational charity dedicated 

to helping people realise their potential through giving them the skills and confidence in communication 

to articulate their ideas and share them with others. The ESU has a network of over 50 International ESUs, 

which help to deliver our educational programmes and organise events across the globe, encouraging 

international understanding and cultural exchange through the use of the English language. The ESU works 

principally with young people, providing opportunities for them to develop their communication and 

critical thinking skills and, thus, encouraging them to realise their full potential. Across our programmes, 

there is a focus on oracy – the development of speaking and listening skills – ranging from formal public 

speaking and debate training in schools, or awards  which recognise innovation in ELT resources, to 

professional development opportunities for people to share new ideas and articulate them with others.  

 

The International Teacher Award recognises educational excellence and outreach in the field of Oracy 

across the diverse ESU global network, and seeks to help recipients further the impact and awareness of 

their work in the field. Through this award, we aim to recognise, encourage and develop the work of 

international teachers who are generating social impact through the advancement of English oracy skills 

in their students.  

  

Eligibility 

International ESUs may nominate any number of working teachers who teach children that are in 

compulsory schooling, or are between the ages of five and eighteen. The Award is open to teachers in 

every kind of school and, subject to local laws, in every country that has an officially registered ESU. The 

individual candidates will be required to complete an application form and personal statement, and submit 

these along with a professional reference and a letter of endorsement from their local ESU. 

 

 Judging Criteria:  

The judging panel will look for evidence of: 

-  An understanding of the importance of oracy skills and applying this to their practice. 

-  Employing effective, innovative practices, which are inspiring to students. 

-  In the case of ‘English as an additional language learners’, seeking to ensure that the development 

of oracy skills is given at least equal importance to literacy skills in the learning of the language. 

-  Seeking to empower students from less advantaged backgrounds through their development as 

confident users of spoken English. 

-  Seeking to develop the confidence of students to use spoken English as a way to explore and share 

their developing views and opinions. 

-  Seeking to use the development of English oracy skills to develop students’ awareness and 

willingness to take positive action with regard to global and local social issues.  

Guidelines for the personal statement 

The personal statement (1000-1500 words) is the most important part of the application. In their 

statement, candidates should include details of their reasons for applying, their professional history in the 

field (including examples) and how they would hope to develop their practice if successful. The personal 

statement should seek to cover each of the judging  criteria listed above. Candidates should also 

describe the anticipated impact of the award on the wider community in which they work. Relevant 

pictures and/or video footage may be included to support the application.  

The Award 

The panel will award up to £2000 to the winners, which may be given to a single candidate, or split across 

multiple applications. In addition, the nominating ESU(s) will receive a grant of up to £500, to be put 

towards their own ESU activities, on the proviso that they continue to support the work of the winning 

candidate.  

Upon receipt of the award, and to ensure that the influence of the award can be as far reaching as possible, 

recipients are expected to: 

  • Submit a full and detailed report.
  • Give talks and presentations to conferences, ESUs and other relevant teacher groups and organisations.  
  • Create or contribute to relevant blogs or other social media outlets which can encourage the wider profession to engage with the topics in question.  

Report 

Within 12 months of receiving the award, recipients are required to submit a report detailing how the 

money has been spent, what the candidate has learnt from the experience and how their own practice has 

developed as a consequence. Reports should include: 

  • An introduction 
  • Any relevant background information 
  • Details of how the money was spent 
  • Learnings from the experience 
  • Relevant conclusions

THE BIGGEST INSPIRATION FROM THE IPSC 2018

Category: Information

Representing Ukraine at the International Public Speaking Competition (IPSC) in London has been such an incredible adventure: the most unforgettable week of improving public speaking skills, exploring the capital of the United Kingdom, exchanging worldviews and most importantly, building friendships that, I feel, will last a lifetime.
     The IPSC programme ran from 14th to 19th of May 2018 and every moment of it deserves to be remembered forever. It was a terrific week full of happiness, uplifting spirit, and open-mindedness delivered by participants from over 50 countries. Despite it seemingly being a competition, I believe we have surpassed its boundaries by constructing a multicultural community which promotes the use of English as a language to communicate ideas and address issues of mass importance.


    Firstly, at the beginning of the week we had an amazing opportunity to learn effective speech techniques from the best oracy coaches.The workshops for prepared and impromptu speech were really interactive, engaging and have boosted our confidence a lot. What is more, we had a chance to attend a workshop by Mary McNutty at the Shakespeare’s Globe theatre. Mary McNutty is an Associate Lecturer at Kent University, teaching Shakespeare and courses in Dramaturgy.


   Secondly, I loved listening to the impressive speeches of the participants. Fifty one young people came together to speak, and every single person had their own vision of the 2018 topic  – ‘Great artists have no country’. Listening to them, I got goosebumps and chills, teared up, smiled and felt empathy. Everyone showed so much talent and passion about their beliefs. Personally I spoke about the universal language of art in the prepared heat and about the adversity as the best education in the impromptu heat.


    Thirdly, it became very clear that the competitive part of this event was merely a facade for something much greater. I met an unimaginable amount of people who made it possible to experience something profound, ultimately crossing all the borders and broadening horizons. Now I am extremely lucky to have a dear friend in pretty much every spot of the world. I will never forget the moments we shared together: seeing the Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge, London Eye; discussing the most amusing facts about our countries and sharing personal stories.


     I thank the English-Speaking Union from the bottom of my heart for this fantastic opportunity to participate in the International Public Speaking Competition. It has been the biggest inspiration I could ever imagine.

W. Shakespeare can be modern and stylish

Category: Information

“Our doubts are traitors, 
and make us lose the good we oft might win, 
by fearing to attempt.”

William Shakespeare

On 26th of April 2018 National Shakespeare Competition supported by deputy Oleksandr Horbunov was held in Volodymyr Vynnychenko Central Ukrainian State Pedagogical University. The competition started with a minute of silence in memory of Margarita Danilko, Chairman of the ESU Ukraine, President of the International Council, who suddenly passed away.

Traditionally the participants amazed the audience with impressive performances, love to great words of Shakespeare and intense desireto get victory. 27 semi-finalists recited euphonious lines from William Shakespeare`s sonnets and the jury chose 9 reciters for the great final.

The final of the competition was emotional and interesting. Every participant tried his best to succeed. The jury announced the winners of National Shakespeare Competition 2018 and all the competitors were awarded with certificatesof participation and presents. The 3rd place was given simultaneously to 2 participants: Vadym Bilodid (Haivoron Polytechnic College, third-year student) and Anna Ohlobiak (Gymnasium of New Teaching Technologies, Kropyvnytskyi, 10th Form). The runner-up was Daria Puchnina (Central Ukrainian State Pedagogical University, first-year student). As the winner of the competition Olena Dzhus was chosen (Central Ukrainian State Pedagogical University, 2nd Year student).

         For Olena Dzhus this victory is not a happy occasion, it is a result of many years training and self-development, because it is her third attempt to win the mountain top, which name is National Shakespeare Competition. The winner considers this competition as a perfect possibility to overcome fear, express your emotions, show your own vision of classical sonnet and just get pleasure of socializing with talented youth.

Every year National Shakespeare Competition attracts talented reciters who demonstrate that the sonnets of great English classic can be modern, stylish and interesting.
