University of Sussex 9-10th July 2021
ATP International Teachers’ Conference 2021
9th-10th July 2021. University of Sussex
We are looking towards July 2021 with hope and patience and keeping everything crossed that we will be able to hold our conference face-to-face. Whilst we may still not be able to hug, we will certainly have lots of excellent CPD, celebration and drinks!
Planning goes on as normal for conference, with keynote speakers and workshops and exhibition being arranged. Bookings are open at
If for any reason the government says that we are not permitted to hold the conference due to Covid-19, we will not be postponing again, but will instead hold a two-day virtual conference. This will have as many elements of our face-to-face conference that we can squeeze in, including plenty of networking opportunities.
If you are interested in running a workshop, please do not hesitate to email me at:
Take care, stay safe and we really hope to be able to welcome you to Sussex in July. If not, we hope to see you virtually.

ATP Annual Conference
This two-day conference offers exceptional value for money
Bookings are now open for ATP International Teachers' Conference 2021!
The 50th Anniversary ATP International Psychology Teachers Conference will take place at the University of Sussex from Friday 9th to Saturday 10th July 2021.
There will be limited additional accommodation available to book on the Thursday night for those who would like to arrive early. We will also have another ATP Fringe event on the Thursday night, which will be free to delegates (More details to follow.)
This includes two full days of conference, B&B, all meals, wine reception, gala dinner and entertainment, a choice of 49 breakout events, including workshops run by awarding bodies, three internationally renowned keynote speakers and an exhibition featuring key publishers, awarding bodies and more. Plus, the chance to network, get invaluable resources and ideas to support your teaching as well as a chance to unwind and get inspired for the new academic year.
In order to keep conference costs low for you, delegates are required to be members. The non-member fee provides temporary ‘membership’ status for the duration of the conference but without the advantage of receiving ATP Today magazine three times a year and/or other benefits. To sign up to be a member (and save on the conference fee), simply go to the ATP Membership page to pay via PayPal or standing order.
