Thank you

A HUGE thank you to everyone who came to our inaugural pan-London day conference ‘Breaking the ice: addressing LGBT issues in the ESOL classroom’ on Saturday 13 October at the British Council.

The success of this very well attended conference is the result of a range of positive contributions for which the NATECLA London team wishes to express their gratitude.

Special thanks to all the speakers who gave their precious time and shared their knowledge and experience with us: John Gray, Sheila Macdonald, Finn Greig, Chris Dye, Yusef Gojikian, and our own Laila El-Metoui.

Details of the presentations the day can be found here.

Our sincere gratitude to the British Council for hosting the event, and in particular to Melissa Cudmore , Rebecca Maher and  Rhea Finnie who helped with practicalities on and leading up to the day

We wish to acknowledge the support of Leo Freeman and Jacqui Beckford for providing BSL interpreting to one of our contributors.

Sally Bird and Chloe Hindmarsh for highlighting the benefits of joining NATECLA and recruiting new members.

This event supported fundraising for the Ruth Hayman Trust and we are delighted to state that your contributions amounted to over £150, which will go towards supporting ESOL Learners with fees and equipment.

More to come soon, including a film of the full conference and articles …

Our event is free and open to all.  It is one of the many benefits of being a NATECLA member for more information of the benefits of our membership please click here:

Many thanks, on behalf of the London Group.
