BELTA is proud to work with various organisations to meet our mission and goals to develop professional development for English Language Teaches in Belgium. Here is a list of our partners that we are presently working with. You can also meet our partners at our Annual Conference.
We are an associate member of IATEFL, The International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language. BELTA participates yearly in the IATEFL Conference by attending the Associates Day and by sending BELTA members to the conference to participate and to present.
We partner with two IATEFL associate members - IATEFL Poland and TESOL Greece. With our partnership agreements, our associations can exchange speakers at annual conferences and swap articles for our individual journals. In the past, we have been fortunate to have speakers from both associations at our conferences, and previously, late Board Member Joris De Roy attended the IATEFL Poland Conference while this year present Board Member, Rianne Ariëns will represent BELTA at the TESOL Greece annual conference.
