Welcome to the new IATEFL website. Our main aim has been to provide you with a new, mobile-friendly site with better navigation and new resources for you.

Some highlights of our new website...

  • In order to join IATEFL, register for the annual conference, a SIG event or to apply for a scholarship, you first need to quickly create your login account. This is free and simple to do, just click on the 'login' link at the top of the page.
  • If you are already a member you should have been sent a link to set up your username and password. 
  • In the 'About' section you can see who's who in IATEFL, find out about our future plans, and access key association documents. If you are logged in as a member on the 'key documents' page you'll also see information about your association which is only available to members.
  • In the 'Events' section you can see all our up-coming events, including the annual conference, SIG events, IATEFL webinars and SIG webinars. They are all presented in chronological order, and you can easily filter to quickly find exactly what you're looking for.
  • 'News and Views' shows you all the latest IATEFL news, as well as blog post 'views' written by our members around the world.
  • 'Special interests' introduces each of our 16 Special Interest Groups, including links to each of their websites.
  • The 'My Resources' section is a searchable archive of articles, publications, newsletters and webinar recordings. Selecting 'SIG Resources' will show you resources from the Special Interest Groups you are a member of. The moment you join an additional SIG, you'll automatically have access to their resources too. There's also a shop where you can purchase IATEFL publications.
  • In 'Jobs' you can see current vacancies being advertised and subscribe to our Jobs Alert service for new postings. If you're an employer you can add your job easily and cheaply, and tell our global audience about your job opportunity.
  • In the 'Get involved' section you can find out about our membership types and benefits, volunteering with us, donating to one of our charitable schemes, and information about our 'IATEFL Associate' membership associations in regions and countries around the world.
  • Once you've logged in, you'll also be able to see your 'My Dashboard'. This is where you can control your membership, change your preferences, apply for scholarships, submit conference proposals, register for conference, view SIGs and periodicals you have subscriptions for, make payments and much more.
