Resource in a Box – Presenting Myself

An interactive resource to build students’ skills of presenting themselves (in writing and speech)


This box contains everything you need to run a session to develop your students’ skills of presenting themselves. There are two pathways: writing and speaking. The writing pathway explores skills used to write personal statements and application forms, and the speaking pathway enables students to develop their skills of speaking in interviews and presentations. The plan is really flexible, to suit your space, the time you have, student numbers and the focus you’d like to give it. You can choose to follow just one pathway or combine the two; both involve a range of activities and games in which students lead their own learning and make choices based on their self-audit of skills. This box includes: a teacher overview; plans for both pathways; student self-audit frames; all instructions and resources for the activities.

Target year group:

Year 12/13

Curriculum subject links:

The session could be delivered through PSHE but will have positive impact on many other subjects. The skills learnt are transferable and link to English.
