  • Promote innovative and original ideas that have practical classroom outcomes
  • Support teachers' own professional development through:
    • access to current research
    • publications
    • national and regional conferences
  • Provide an informed national voice on matters concerning the teaching of English and its related subjects
  • Encourage sharing and collaboration between teachers and learners of English and its related subjects
