Welcome to the new SATE blog!

Hello!  We are SATE, the Scottish Association for the Teaching of English.  We’re a growing organisation affiliated to the National Association for the Teaching of English (NATE).  If you are interested in joining SATE, check out the benefits of joining NATE at https://www.nate.org.uk/ and drop us a line at connectSATE@gmail.com or use the contact form on this blog.  You can also follow us on and contact us through Twitter at @SATEfeed.

There is an existing SATE blog at https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/glowblogs/sateblog/; over the next few weeks, many of the posts you will find there will be migrated to this blog.  In the meantime, our first posts will be about the fantastic NATE 2017 conference, held in Nottingham this year.

We hold meetings and seminars as often as possible.  In August, we are hoping to hold a session on The Autism Friendly English classroom in Ayrshire with Charlene Tait, and a literacy event for English teachers featuring Professor Sue Ellis in Glasgow on the 20th of August.  Look out for details here and on Twitter and for booking on Eventbrite. We’re planning a range of other events, from chats over coffee or a beer to day conferences; keep in touch and let us know about anything you’d like to see us do!

We do hope you will feel SATE can offer you something in your work as a teacher of English, and, indeed, that you can join us and offer something to SATE.
