Effect of a voice care programme on student teachers

Project: Non-funded projectResearch (No External Funding)


The proposed study aims to introduce voice hygiene at an early stage in student teacher training and follow this up with materials designed to stimulate self-management throughout participants’ teacher training programme. This approach will be evaluated using validated questionnaires and a demographic questionnaire. This will establish if there is a sustained impact of vocal hygiene training on student teachers, with a focus on those who are following a shorter duration of training so that retention might be facilitated with the project lasting during their registered studies. Follow up of participants to the end of their first year as a newly qualified teacher will be offered to participants who opt in to the study so that longer term impact can be evaluated
