If you are in the process of selecting a public speaking & debating classes in Sydney for your child, we encourage you to consider these key questions.

1. Who is teaching the program?

a) Are they qualified school teachers that hold a university teaching degree or equivalent? This will help ensure they are trained and skilled at teaching in a way that will achieve the best learning outcomes for the students.

Our experience shows that the qualifications, experience and skill of the teacher is one of the most important considerations when finding a program that is best for teaching groups of children.

Be sure to check that the person teaching your child is an experienced, qualified & skilled teacher before booking into any program. Being a champion public speaker or debater with a working with children check, usually does not translate into being effective at teaching groups of children in a way that delivers the best learning outcomes – these are two very different skill sets.

At Super Speak, we pride ourselves on having some of the most experienced and skilled teachers of children in the industry. They are also supported by a principal who has over 30 years experience teaching these subjects to groups of children (more info below). Our teachers are also very experienced and well trained in delivering engaging classes that are positive, fun & high in energy to help ensure the best possible learning outcomes for each student.

You can rest assured your child is in the very best hands.

b) Are they registered the relevant state teaching institute?  For NSW that would be the NESA, for Victoria that would be the Victorian institute of teaching. This ensures that they are capable and able to work in any NSW school, have completed all relevant police checks and are undertaking regular professional development to advance their skills.

2. Who designed the program?

Are they qualified school teachers with at least a bachelor in education? Are they experienced school teachers? Are they registered and recognised teachers with the NESA or the Victorian Institute of Teaching? What is their background?

When it comes to finding the best public speaking & debating classes for your children, you should aim to find a “yes” to all of the questions above.
