This year we have moved our 'January' Event to 'February' so that we avoid any clash with ISMLA's annual conference which this year is being held at Cheltenham Ladies' College.  (But please come to ours as well!!!!)

We are extremely grateful to the LSE for hosting us over the last three years, and we are just as grateful to Paul Blagburn of the London Metropolitan  University for offering to host us this year, offering us a central and accessible location (opposite  Holloway Tube station which is 5 minutes from Kings Cross / St Pancras) as well as the opportunity to get to know another educational institution with enough space to take us all!  Your travel card will also take you to the wealth of attractions London has to offer after the event!

Here's the invitation:

All are invited to come along to:

Please note that we deliberately keep down the cost of courses by subsidising them from ALL funds: we feel that members ought to receive value for the money paid in subscription fees to the Association. Fees charged do not, in any way, reflect the quality of courses offered! NQTs and PGCE students: Consider joining as an Associate Member
