Are you a HE Tutor? Interested in leading a group of student teachers shadowing the 2016 UKLA Book Awards in the summer term? Register your University to participate in this exciting programme, and two of your students could win a place at the UKLA International Conference 2016!

In an exciting new development, student shadowing is now sponsored by the NUT. This sponsorship enables us to offer up to 6 student conference places for the 2016 UKLA International Conference in Bristol.

We invite participating tutors to select up to two students who have made outstanding contributions to student shadowing and write brief statements in support of their nominees. These nominations will be judged by a UKLA panel and the winning students will be invited to the UKLA International Conference at guests of UKLA. Submissions invited from 2 May 2016, closing date 1 June.
