Our committee is made up of a group of hard-working volunteers who care greatly about the success of language departments in the UK and in international schools abroad. Each committee member has a specific role and can be contacted via the contact page. Occasionally we are looking for new committee members and will announce this, but if you are interested in getting involved in our work, please do get in touch and let us know.
