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.
