The UKLA couldn’t achieve all that it does without the help of its Regional Representatives – 30 brilliant literacy professionals from within and around the education sector who all work really hard to support our members. We want to celebrate this dedication and so are launching a brand new feature on our website: “Regional Rep of the Month” where we’ll shine a spotlight on these important UKLA members and their work.
