Due to COVID restrictions, the UKLA team is working from home. This is a challenging time for us all, so your patience is very much appreciated.

International Ambassadors

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

Our international 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.
