IELTS Stakeholder Information Seminars

Learn more about IELTS and meet members of the team with our free Stakeholder Information Seminars. 

Discover everything you need to know about IELTS with our Stakeholder Information Seminars – designed for people working at a university or college, in immigration, or for recognising professional registration bodies and employers.

In these free seminars, you’ll meet members of the IELTS team from the British Council and Cambridge Assessment English, and will have the opportunity to discuss your situation with them. 

In addition to learning all the essentials about IELTS, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to network with colleagues in similar roles at other institutions.

If you work in a recognising organisation, you can attend the seminars whether you’ve worked with IELTS for some time or are new to your post – you’ll get all the key information you need, as well as the latest updates about IELTS.
