Pre-Conference Events

Our Pre-Conference Events (PCEs), organised by our 16 Special Interest Groups (SIGs), are being held on Monday 16 May 2022.

These events allow you to explore a particular subject area in more depth, network with colleagues from around the world and to continue your professional development. 

Each PCE runs for the full day and it is only possible to register and attend one PCE. All PCE delegates will receive a certificate of attendance.

Your choice of PCEs in Belfast are below!

Once our PCEs are live, you will be able to make a booking through the IATEFL events page.
