Eight good reasons to join NATE 

Our journals and magazines, which members receive termly, will keep you updated. Currently, we publish:
  • Teaching English For 2014 there will be a new magazine, Teaching English. NATE’s two former professional periodical, Classroom and English Drama Media, are to be replaced by a single new title, Teaching English. This fresh, appealing and well-illustrated magazine will bring together the best of both the previous titles, continuing their tradition of thought-provoking and inspiring writing about what happens in English classrooms and in the English curriculum. It will also retain popular sections on News, Reviews and Briefing on significant events and publications throughout the year. The new magazine will therefore appeal strongly not only to classroom teachers of English from KS1 to KS5, but also to lecturers, advisers, researchers and teacher trainers within English Language, English Literature, Media and Drama.
  • English in Education – The Association’s prestigious research journal, issued termly. It provides an international perspective on the current theories and pedagogies which inform classroom practice.
NATE books can be bought at a significant discount. The list of well-regarded titles is now being developed in partnership with Routledge publishers; members are still able to buy all the NATE books, through the NATE bookshop at www.nate.org.uk, at a privileged discount (usually 25%), with the added benefit of Routledge offering a 15% discount to NATE members on all their other titles too, through the Routledge online store.
Membership of NATE can be used as evidence towards fulfilling many of the professional standards for teachers, helping practitioners access higher pay scales.
NATE provides professional development through its highly recommended INSET training days, national and regional events and workshops at conferences, also discounted to members.
Access to the members' area of the NATE website which houses every single article from every back issue of Teaching English, NATE Classroom, English Drama Media and English in Education as well as other resources such as our Grammar for Wrting materials. Institutional membership allows this online access to be shared with several staff.
NATE's liaison with government bodies ensures teachers of English have a voice on national issues that will directly affect their practice – a specialist, experienced voice which wouldn't be heard without member support.
NATE membership offers the opportunity to network with the country's leading practitioners, national figures in the teaching of English, and to be seen as a committed professional – a simple, worthwhile addition to any teacher's CV.
NATE membership fees (Individual members and Primary Associates) are tax-deductible.
