ATP Annual Conference 2018

The ATP Annual Conference: For the Teacher, by the teacher

Friday 6th July - Sunday 8th July 2018 at University of Leeds

The ATP conference is for teachers of psychology and will offer updating sessions on psychology, presentations and workshops on teaching and learning, and opportunities to meet with exam boards representatives and to share good practice.

It is the number one CPD event for teachers of psychology in the UK.

The three-day ATP Annual conference boasts over 40 workshops to enhance your CPD on a wide range of topics from teaching and learning to current research. We offer full and half conference packages as well as one-day CPD events. Delegates who book the one-day package are welcome to join us for our evening wine reception, giving you invaluable time to network and socialise. We look forward to welcoming you to the 2018 conference whether you are old friends or newcomers!

The conference also attracts around 30 exhibitors including publishers and other providers of teaching resources.
