The ESB Entry Level Award in Speech (Entry 3) promotes oracy and is designed to develop learners’ speaking, reading, listening and responding skills. The target learner group is Year 5 pupils. The qualification is mapped to National Curriculum requirements in Spoken Language at Key Stages 1 and 2. All assessment is external, in your school at a time to suit you.
Talk about something you have achieved, made, grown or learned about for 3 minutes. Use visual aids to support your talk. Candidates might talk about: how they gained a certificate; a trophy they have won, making or growing something; the planets, the Tudors. Displays and demonstration may be integrated into the talk. Demonstration, if used, must be integrated into the 3 minutes allocated. Brief, key word notes may be used – the examiner may ask to see these.Close
