IATEFL Gillian Porter Ladousse Scholarship

TTEd SIG offers this conference scholarship for a teacher trainer and/or trainee



This conference scholarship was set up by the Trainers and Educators SIG (TTEd SIG) in 1999. The driving force behind the Conference Fund was Gillian Porter Ladousse who was Co-ordinator of the SIG at the time. The fund was set up to enable a teacher trainer and/or a trainee, who would not normally be able to do so, to attend the annual IATEFL conference. The fund was named the Gillian Porter Ladousse Scholarship after Gillian's death in 2002. One or two scholarships are usually awarded each year, one to a trainer and/or one to a trainee. In the case of two scholarships being awarded, priority will be given to a trainer and trainee who work together, but all other applications will be carefully considered on merit. The award consists of: o a conference booking o GBP600 towards conference related expenses To be considered, you must meet the following criteria: o you have to be a current individual member o you must submit a speaker proposal by the scholarship deadline of 23RD AUGUST and no later o you are a newcomer with between three and ten years' experience in ELT o you must, if you win the scholarship, write an article for the TTEd SIG newsletter on how attending the conference affected your programme of work in your local context.
