Teachers and teaching assistants are eight times more likely to suffer voice problems than any other profession (Voice Care UK). Newly-qualified teachers are at even greater risk. According to a study by Greenwich University, 50% of NQTs suffer voice loss during their first year in teaching (National Education Union, 2018).

The resulting working days lost cost over £15 million per year in the UK (National Union of Teachers, 2016). The cost in terms of continuity of provision for our pupils – immeasurable.

Course media


So, we teamed up with an experienced classroom teacher and university ITE educator to design the short online course Use and Care of Voice for Teacher Assistant Training

The course develops teacher understanding of voice production, vocal variety and vocal health.

The relationship between use of voice and classroom presence is highlighted and optional links throughout the course mean the learning journey can be personalised to meet individual professional development needs.

The voice is a teacher’s most important tool – it is worth investing in.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
