What is World Voice?
World Voice is a teacher-training programme, developed by the British Council, which trains primary school teachers to use singing as a pedagogical tool to enhance children’s learning in a wide range of subjects. World Voice is aimed at teachers who have no musical training and who may not be able to sing.
Since 2013 the British Council has introduced World Voice to 20 countries across the world and is developing the programme in a further four. In each country, World Voice is tailored to meet local curricular, pedagogical and cultural needs. For example, in Senegal, Jordan, India and Kenya, the World Voice programme focuses on English learning.
