"Speakout has been a tremendously exciting project to work on for many reasons. We've had amazing opportunities offered to us through the partnership with the BBC, and we've been incredibly lucky to work with such an enthusiastic and experienced team of people. We had a shared vision, and worked together to create something genuinely different, that would appeal to both teachers and learners around the world. Winning the ESU award feels like a fantastic achievement for us all."

The Speakout authors: Antonia Clare, Frances Eales, Steve Oakes, JJ Wilson
