University of Sussex 9-10th July 2021

ATP International Psychology Teachers' Conference 2020


It is with a very heavy heart that given the current situation, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the ATP International Psychology Teachers' Conference 2020. Your well-being is our absolute priority. What I can promise is that next year we will celebrate like it is 2020! We will still have all the celebrations that I have been working towards for our 50th anniversary as well as a fantastic conference, just a year later. Something to look forward to.

We will still be holding the conference at the University of Sussex and the new dates are Friday 9th - Saturday 10th July 2021. We hope to see you there.

If you had already booked your place, you will receive an email shortly from our booking agent KC Jones explaining what is happening with bookings: - https://www.kc-jones.co.uk/atp2020

Wishing you all well.

On behalf of the committee

Conference Organiser.

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. 

ATP Annual Conference 
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.
