Roles available within ALT

Get involved in ALT and take an active role in the work we do

Each year we issue an open call for Members to become more involved in the work of ALT. Taking an active part in the work of the Association ensures that all activities are shaped by Members’ priorities and also offer valuable opportunities for professional development and recognition.

We seek expressions of interest from Members from:

  • all sectors of education and training including schools, vocational education, Higher Education and work-based learning

  • people in research, practitioner, management, technical and policy roles as well as learners who have a special interest in Learning Technology

  • the private and public sectors

  • within and outside the UK (subject to reaching agreement on an effective method of participation).

Take an active part in the governance of ALT
