English UK subgroups

English UK special interest, national and regional subgroups

English UK has a variety of subgroups representing either teaching specialisms or regions. All English UK members are free to join any or all of the relevant subgroups if they wish. Connecting with other members is a great way to share ideas, find support on challenges, learn from each other and raise your profile together.

Subgroups are about mutual support: 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.

Young Learners English UK is a special interest group open to English UK members who provide courses for students aged 7-17 years.

Why study in Northern Ireland? Founder member Paul McMullan says: "There are lots of reasons: Northern Ireland is still fairly inexpensive compared to the rest of the UK and Southern Ireland, and it's unique in the world that it's an English-speaking location not already saturated with international students."
