Do you feel nervous and butterflies dance in your stomach when someone asks you to deliver a public presentation?

It is said that teachers are born presenters, but ask a teacher to speak in front of the colleagues or address the gathering of students or parents, and the chances are, they will shy away from the occasion and refuse to speak in front of their peers. With the rise of the agency specializing in education staffing solutions in London, aspiring teachers are becoming increasingly confident at public speaking. Saracens Recruitment – a quality driven recruitment agency – suggests candidates, looking for education jobs in London and Berkshire, to gather for informal conferences where everyone is given a platform; free from critique or accountability.

a Teacher, Afraid of Public Speaking – Follow the Tips
The notion is that people – who lack confidence with public speaking – are more likely to speak in front of strangers than they would stand in front of their colleagues. Speaking publicly to over 200 students is part and parcel of a teacher's job. Public speaking is part of their day job. Sometimes they have to speak to over thousands of students, a room full of parents or on some occasions, over 500+ adults attending an education conference or an annual function being held in their school.

Public speaking is all about sharing the work you are doing. Delivering your story with pragmatism and integrity are a sure way to engage an audience and enable them to take your ideas away and implement them straight away in their personal life. Being a teacher you should always work with what is best for your students and gives credibility to your work.

  • FOCUS – While addressing the gathering, limit your talk to just one major idea. Slash back your content and give yourself a chance to share that idea properly. Make that one idea link back to everything you say and give context throughout.

  • REASON TO CARE – Give people a reason to care about what you have to say. Seek the audience’s permission by stirring their curiosity. Why so and so needs explaining? Why “ABC” knowledge is missing and needs to be plugged into your mind-gap?

  • BUILD WITH CONCEPTS – The addressing speech should be based on the idea which is very much similar to the concepts that your audience already understands. Use the power of language to weave together concepts that already exist in your listeners’ minds; use the language that can be understood by the audience easily and not what you understand.

  • MAKE IT WORTH IT – Make your idea worth sharing. Ask yourself, who will get benefit from this idea that you're sharing? Is it just you or your organization, then it’s probably not worth sharing, but if it will inspire someone to do something differently, then you have the core ingredient.

Something to think about for every teacher standing up in front of their students.
