Josephine Williams, Conference and Events Leader, IDP Education

Dear Colleagues,


As always, it is a pleasure to welcome you to the latest issue of Expressions.
 
I’d like to welcome colleagues from our first test centre in Greece to the IDP IELTS network. IDP Education is pleased to offer test takers the opportunity to take their test in more than 450 locations in 55 countries worldwide.
For those of you in New Zealand, our Stakeholder Engagement team will conduct two IELTS information sessions in November. These sessions are for users of IELTS test results and I encourage you to sign up to stay informed about any changes and to refresh your knowledge of the test.
 
I’d also like to highlight the Australian International Education Conference (in Melbourne, Australia, from 18–21 October) and the invaluable professional development and networking opportunities it offers. The program is now available.
 
The hard work of those involved with English language testing and teaching must be acknowledged; congratulations to the 2016 winner of the IELTS Morgan Terry Memorial Scholarship Award.
 
Thank you to all the researchers who have either recently submitted an application for the latest round of the IELTS research grant program, are already undertaking research , or have just published their findings. The IELTS research program provides valuable insights into not only the test, but also its uses. Several very interesting reports have been published recently on the use of English language in the workplace.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions for any article you would like to see in Expressions. If there’s a story from your organisation that you would like to share, please email us at ielts.communications@idp.com.

Yours sincerely,
Josephine Williams, Conference and Events Leader, IDP Education
