The Perks

Having just finished my teacher training, NATE has provided me with an invaluable bank of resources and support in what could have been the most stressful year of my career. The materials they publish not only encourage me to reflect upon my own teaching practice, but give me the confidence to try out new techniques in the classroom. Teaching English, the termly magazine, encompasses relevant and up to date research and articles which have had a direct impact on my teaching and in turn my pupils. Definitely a worthwhile subscription!

Sheridan Smith – Trainee Teacher Aug 2015

NATE is a real life-line in so many ways for English teachers. Having attended a number of NATE conferences over the years as well used many NATE resources, I know what a wonderful professional association it is: supportive, understanding and incredibly helpful. Every English teacher should join NATE if they want to improve their practice and to have a voice in the wider educational world.

Francis Gilbert - www.francisgilbert.co.uk

NATE has been a constant source of support and inspiration throughout my three decades of teaching. Its publications have enabled me to keep abreast of developments in English education from primary to university level, as well as offering a wealth of ideas to try out in the classroom. Now, more than ever, NATE’s commitment to both the theory and practice of teaching makes it an invaluable resource.
