Country Ambassadors

Our new ambassadors will be central in supporting us with UKLA's agenda, ‘for the advancement of education in literacy’

Our country ambassadors will:

  • showcase research from their countries;
  • encourage new members to join UKLA;
  • support colleagues who wish to become part of a SIG (special interest group);
  • suggest colleagues attend the ‘friendliest’ of international literacy conferences.

They will also be advising the International Sub-Committee on how UKLA might make links with other local literacy organisations, share upcoming events, or by sharing key policy issues and discussions, which have a habit of going global.
