International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language
Linking, developing and supporting English Language Teaching professionals worldwide
IATEFL works with over 100 Teaching Associations worldwide to promote professional cooperation in ELT and maintain an international network of support and communication.
This gives IATEFL Associates and their members the opportunity to join forums and link up with English language educators around the world.
Through this network ELT teachers can share best practice, develop their skills and raise standards in English language teaching and learning.

We also have advice for those wishing to set up a new association.
Does your Associate have a project that needs part-funding? Every year IATEFL, together with the Hornby Trust and the British Council, invite competitive applications from IATEFL Associates for grants of 2,000 GBP towards funding a project to develop the Associate and its activities. Interested? Please read the conditions and instructions in the Call for Proposals and then submit your Application Form to the address cited. Deadline for this year is 28th November 2014.
We are pleased to announce that as a part of a desire to continue to innovate and broaden IATEFL’s mission to link, develop and support English language teaching professionals worldwide that we are going to offer the opportunity for one of our Teacher Associations to bid to run a local, funded project. This is a pilot and will be evaluated before we make this a regular feature of IATEFL’s contribution to the language teaching community. It is expected that a project will reach a broad community of English language teachers in the local context and give the opportunity for less experienced teachers to take an active role. One of the key elements of the project is its dissemination, so that the broader IATEFL family hears about what has happened as a part of the project.
Projects might be of a whole variety of types, but should demonstrate sustainable outcomes. Example projects might include:
