English Language Teaching Conference

The English Language Teaching Conference

Friday 17 - Saturday 18 January 2020
Prospero House, London

The ELT Conference is a one-stop event for ELT practitioners and their managers. The two-day event includes expert speakers, materials providers and the chance to connect with contacts old and new over great food and an evening drinks reception.

We are excited to welcome Countdown host Susie Dent again in 2020 for more fascinating musings on the English language.

Friday is designed for academic managers, directors of studies, curriculum managers and others involved in course development. Saturday's programme is designed for teachers and classroom practitioners.

Previously known as the Academic Conference, the event welcomes around 300 delegates for inspiring plenaries and over 30 elective sessions. Delegates can explore a variety of topics, such as mental health, technology in the classroom and develping an excellent teaching team for inspections.

"I found it inspiring. Today was just a nice opportunity to approach speakers and ask them questions." - Sara Vaghefian, University of the Arts

"I really enjoyed it and found everything useful. The focus on mental health was really interesting and something that came up very regularly last year in teacher meetings. There were some really good ideas to take back." - Jo Kroussaniotakis, Wimbledon School of English

"I've come for about eight years. I enjoy it, I learn a lot, it's a really good day for reflecting." - John Watson, Into Manchester
