English UK Members' Conference & AGM
The English UK Members' Conference is one of the highlights of the English UK calendar, giving you, our members, the chance to share your experiences, help shape the association and meet your representatives.
After a successful hybrid conference in May 2021, we are planning for our 2022 conference to enable members to meet in person while also providing those unable to travel to the venue the opportunity to join us live online.
2021 English UK Members' Conference
Our first ever hybrid members' conference, incorporating the Annual General Meeting, was held on Friday 21 May 2021.
The event comprised of a small in-person Covid-19-secure conference held at the Hilton London Tower Bridge plus many more members joining live online, via Zoom.
Conference feedback was outstanding with 93% of delegates saying they felt better connected to the UK ELT/ English UK community afterwards.
2020 English UK Members' Conference
Our first ever online members' conference was held in 2020 and attracted almost 500 delegates for two plenaries and 16 breakout sessions on marketing, finance, safeguarding, teaching online and more.
The conference emphasised collaboration to overcome the challenges of the Coronavirus pandemic.
2019 English UK Annual Conference
The 2019 English UK Annual Conference saw record-breaking attendance, analysis of student statistics, a panel discussion about Brexit opportunities and inspirational insights on how to overcome challenges from an explorer.
Over 260 delegates from 164 member centres attended the event in person – most at no cost – with the room still packed during the closing networking reception. They were joined by almost 20 service providers and volunteers from charities that have benefited from Eddie Byers funding. 38 members joined us online, watching the event from our live stream.
Feedback for the conference was excellent: 91% of delegates felt more informed about UK ELT, and 78% received important ideas and information. The event was rated 8.54/10 with 2/3 delegates finding it an inspiring event.
