J Carter Centre for Public Speaking
J Carter Centre for Public Speaking began in 2008 specialising in educating and nurturing our students in the area of communication skills and the English Language. Our communication skills curriculum covers students from 7 years to 18 years old. To date we have nurtured over 4000 students in their quest to be excellent speakers and will continue to nurture more in the near future.
We offer the internationally recognized Trinity College London Communication Skills Syllabus from Initial to Grade 8. We are also a registered Trinity Examination Centre, which means our students can take their exams at J Carter Centre instead of going off-site or as a private candidate. Our students have been achieving excellent results in the International exams yearly and we are considered a leader in communication skills for children and teens in Singapore, as we are one of the pioneers focusing on preparing students for the Trinity Communication Skills Examinations in Singapore.
Besides the Trinity programme, we prepare students for speaking competitions such as Singapore Performing Arts Festival, oral examinations and Direct School Admissions (DSA-SEC) since 2010. We also published one of the first books on DSA prepartion titled, “Success Strategies for Direct School Admissions (DSA) in 2014.
Our centre believes strongly in creating a safe environment for students to excel and build their confidence in order to achieve success in school and in life. We believe that student’s learning is the top priority and everything else is secondary. Our vision is to “Nurture a young speaker to become an inspiring person who is able to encourage positivity, confidence and empathy in others”.
