We run five major conferences each year as part of our work to support high standards in English language teaching, to keep members updated and share best practice. Apart from the Annual Conference, most are of specialist interest.

We endeavour to make our conferences both useful and enjoyable, with a good balance of speakers and subjects and high-quality, accessible venues. English UK also work to raise professional standards within our industry through a range of training days.

Our regular conferences are:
