“The UKLA's fundamental principle is to ensure teachers are informed of the latest, peer-assessed pedagogy whose aim is to improve literacy education for all. Its conferences and resources are second-to-none and you find yourself in the hands of excellent practitioners who don't offer quick fix solutions to improving the four language modes of literacy but concrete, reliable research. All of these stand the charity in good stead and the fact that it is continuously searching for answers (and finding them) in a culture constricted by endless government initiatives, makes it a breath of fresh air. ”

Mat Tobin, Senior Lecturer, Oxford Brookes University
