You do not have to be a member of ASCL to attend the event.

We are working on the conference programme at the moment and full details will be available in due course.

Our latest conference updates will be posted on X first, so make sure you are following us @ASCL_UK. You can join in the conversation by using the hashtag #ASCL2025.

We will be compiling the workshop programme over the Autumn term, workshops will be open for delegate bookings from late January 2025 until mid February 2025. Full details and deadlines will be announced in January 2025.

We encourage delegates to book their workshops before the conference. Entrance to workshops is by ticket only. If you choose not to book in advance, you may not be able to attend your preferred workshop.

If you are interested in potentially delivering a workshop session for us, we’d love to hear from you. Please email with your details and a short paragraph about your potential session. We will look at these and then contact potential speakers with a proposal form if we would like more details. The proposals are then considered by our planning team and successful applicants will be contacted by Christmas 2024.

It should be noted that submitting a proposal does not guarantee acceptance in to the programme as we are usually lucky enough to receive more proposals than available workshop spaces. Delivering a workshop is strictly not a sales opportunity. Delegates are particularly interested in sessions which share good practice and provide information which they can use in their own settings.

Please contact our exhibitions team in the first instance – – they will then be in contact once the exhibition opens for booking.
