International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language

Linking, developing and supporting English Language Teaching professionals worldwide


Becoming an Associate Member

With a network of Teaching Associations in every part of the world – from Albania and Bangladesh to Venezuela and Zimbabwe – becoming an Associate Member can offer your organisation the widest range of experience and knowledge.

How to join us

If this sounds like an attractive option for you, get in touch to discuss your next steps.

We’ll ask you to complete a simple application form and questionnaire to help us understand your Teaching Association, its members and practices a little better. In each case, our aim is to find a close fit in our respective values and missions.

If both parties agree that close co-operation is appropriate and practical, we can then offer access to the Associate scheme on a renewable three-year arrangement free of charge.
