Training day bookings, Teachers' Conference bookings and Professional Services Handbook released
30 September 2011

Teachers' Conference: We are pleased to announce that bookings for our popular Teachers' Conference are open. Held at Prospero House, London, on Saturday 12 November, the conference offers a fantastic day of professional development, networking and socialising.  In addition to a diverse set of elective sessions, Maurice Claypole and Michael McCarthy will be this year's plenary speakers, with Maurice speaking about his controversial 'fractal' approach to language learning and Michael discussing designing a grammar for learners. 

Supported by Cambridge ESOL, the Teachers' Conference is one of the most popular dates in our calendar. Last year's event attracted over 300 participants and we expect a similar level of interest this year. Members benefit from discounted rates, and there is a further discount of 30% for any third or more delegate on each booking. For more information and booking information please see

Booking early to avoid disappointment is recommended.

Training Days:  English UK Professional Services is also pleased to announce that bookings are open for the training days. We have expanded our geographic reach, with sessions in Edinburgh, Manchester and York, and continue to offer up-to-date, relevant sessions of interest to teachers, admin staff and principals and owners alike.  Members benefit from discounted rates, and our offer of buy two get the third free will again be in force.

Please visit for more information and booking forms.

Professional Services Handbook:  As the old saying goes, 'the best things come in threes'.  Or was it 'the best things in life are free'? Either way, the third section of this update is completely free to members – the 2011/2012 Professional Services handbook. Packed with vital information, such as important dates of training days and other courses and with updates from the team here at English UK, the handbook is now available online and is racing off the presses as we speak.
