About Member Groups

When you sign up you’ll see the option to join as an Individual Member, or you can choose to join your local Member Group.

Often it is cheaper to join this way, and you have additional membership benefits, e.g. local event discounts organised by your Member Group.

Renewing online is the fastest and most efficient way to renew your membership, and will help us to minimise waste.  If you are a teacher, you need to read the full details of teacher membership renewal which can be found in the Documents section, once you are signed in.


To join as a teacher you must have completed the Level 1 Assessment.   You can find out about training to teach here.  If you have passed your assessment in another country and would like to apply for teacher membership in the UK, please contact us at


For information about the requirements for reinstating your teacher membership after a break, please contact us.  You can then renew online but may need to send us supporting information.


There are no part year rates for membership. Refunds will normally only be given if there has been an overpayment or an amount paid in error.  Please contact us if you think you have made an incorrect payment or you have a query about a payment you have made.
