English UK has a variety of sub-groups representing either teaching specialisms or regions. All English UK members are free to join any, or all, of the relevant subgroups if they wish.
These sub-groups are intended to help our members work together for marketing, business and training, and to make it easier for agents to find suitable courses for their students. Some of them organise their own CPD events and conferences.
English UK North Academic Conference: 1 October
English UK North's annual Academic Conference for teachers and academic managers takes place in in York on Saturday 1 October. This is the eleventh year the event has been organised.
Their plenary session is 'Fluency Revisited' by the renowned Michael McCarthy, author/ co-author/ editor of more than 40 books and more than 80 academic papers. For each of the breakout sessions they are offering a choice of three subjects, enabling you to tailor your attendance to your personal interests.

English UK South West Annual Conference: 22 October
English UK South West's Annual Conference is on Saturday 22 October, hosted again at Millfield School in Somerset.
The plenary speakers will be David Crystal and much-loved poet Roger McGough. They are also offering a strand aimed at non-teaching staff, to include sessions by Nigel Heritage and the British Council.
It's priced at £35, including refreshments and lunch, and the group would love to see members from outside the region, as well as those from the English UK South West sub-group.
