Essential Information

Workshop reimbursements can only be claimed by non-commercial workshop leaders. 

  • Commercial organisations - Those representing a commercial organisation such as a publisher, awarding body or training organisation will not be entitled to claim a fee and must pay £150 to deliver a session if it is approved. 
  • For non-commercial workshop leaders, NATECLA will pay £50.00 per workshop session, plus travel expenses (£50 maximum). These reimbursements are per workshop and NOT per workshop leader. Alternatively, 1 workshop leader per workshop can receive a FREE day pass to attend other workshops on the same day as their own. 
Please note: NATECLA is a registered charity and, as a result, must limit its expenses accordingly. 

Attending other parts of the conference as a delegate:
  • Commercial workshop leaders are welcome to attend the full conference provided that they purchase a delegate pass for the day(s) that they attend, including the day of their workshop. 
  • Non-commercial workshop leaders can choose to receive a FREE conference day pay to attend other workshops on the same day as their own as an alternative to receiving a £50 reimbursement and travel expenses of up to £50. If there is more than 1 workshop leader delivering a session, we can only supply 1 free pass per workshop.
Take advantage of our early booking rates before 8 May 2015.


It is difficult to predict how popular a workshop will be. We reserve the right – although we try not to exercise it – to cancel a workshop because of low numbers, a week before the conference. This would only happen after consultation with the leader(s).
