Running TEFL Equity Advocates over the last two years would not have been possible without all those individuals who have donated their time, expertise and helped with the website and other ventures of TEFL Equity Advocates along the way. I can’t possibly list them all here (you know who you are!), but if I can list a few, then my special thanks would go to:

Nevertheless, running TEFL Equity Advocates – its website, blog, social media sites, YouTube channel, webinars, lesson plans – contacting schools, on-line job boards and teaching associations to persuade them to implement equal employment opportunities; getting in touch with potential contributors to the blog and webinar presenters; going to conferences to give talks about equal employment opportunities in ELT; as well as editing, proofreading and revising the articles on the blog – it all takes a lot of time and effort every month. As you can imagine, it also takes money.

So if you appreciate the work TEFL Equity Advocates has been doing so far, or find any value in it, and if you would like it to continue expanding, developing and growing,  consider a one-off or regular donation. If you can’t make a donation, please consider talking to your school or director of studies and telling them in what ways TEFL Equity Advocates has helped you develop professionally, and ask them to become a donor.

If you cannot or do not want to contribute financially, but you still find TEFL Equity Advocates work valuable, consider adding TEA supporter badge to your website. You can also help by simply talking about TEA with your colleagues! If you’d like to help or get involved in any other way, please get in touch.

The funds raised through your donations will be used to continue and expand TEFL Equity Advocates work and you will be notified through the blog as to how and when the money has been spent.

There are two upcoming expenses. The first involves printing posters and leaflets, which James Taylor has designed (thanks, James!) for IATEFL 2016 conference in Birmingham, where TEA was given a stand at the Jobs Market fair (thanks, Marjorie and Glenda!). The confirmed cost is £73. I pasted the poster below for you to see, and you can check the receipt here.

The second expense concerns the monthly TEA webinars. So far, the use of the room has been completely free (big thanks to James Taylor, John Arnold and the rest of the BELTA team), but due to increased costs of the room, TEA will have to contribute to the overall fee. The estimated cost is £150. This would cover the cost of the webinar room for the whole year, which means you could continue enjoying them every month. So if you have watched and benefitted from the previous webinars, which can be all found here, please consider contributing some money so we can keep them running.
