BAAL TEASIG in-person conference returns! London, 24th June 2022
The 2022 conference theme is ‘Horizon scanning: what next for language testing?’

We extend a huge thank you to our sponsors, without whom this conference would not be possible!
The British Council have very generously offered the conference resources of their new Stratford location and have assisted enormously in helping BAAL TEASIG hold its first live conference for three years.
We are also grateful to Cambridge for their financial contribution and for sponsoring the costs of one of the keynote speakers and to Text Inspector for sponsoring our new BAAL TEASIG welcome material and giving all conference participants a free one-year voucher for Text Inspector.
