A Message from our Chief Executive

ESB endorses the National Literacy Trust’s Initiative – ‘Words for Life’

ESB wholeheartedly supports this initiative and congratulates all involved. Our 12,000 learners who annually achieve an ESB speech qualification are asked to select a favourite book and prepare an excerpt to read, as part of their assessment as demonstrated below.

Books open up new worlds, experiences and perspectives, as well as develop our vocabulary.  As we ask our learners to read out loud from a favourite book and introduce why they chose it, ESB International also encourages the development of confidence in reading aloud, clear and audible speech, vocal variety, vocabulary, word sounds and blending and hopefully a pleasure in reading.

If any schools would like to know more about our Speech qualifications and talk to one of our team please contact us on findoutmoreaboutESB@esbuk.org.
