Professional development

LLAS has over ten years’ experience delivering professional development for educators in languages and related studies at primary, secondary and university level. Our workshops and conferences provide development opportunities for teaching staff, researchers, support staff and managers. We offer events that focus on discipline-specific topics and approaches that may not be incorporated into generic staff development courses. We have an ongoing events programme, and can also work with your department or organisation to deliver bespoke professional development or workshops.
