“For well over 20 years, I have been a member of UKLA. Why? Publications and the website keep me in touch with the latest ideas and ways to apply them practically. I have learned so much through contact with colleagues of all ages; classroom practitioners, school leaders, education lecturers, school librarians, academic researchers and more. Best of all, I have made a network of supportive friends. UKLA feels like being a member of a big inclusive family. Why don’t you join us? ”
