CIOL has over 7,000 members, and has recently launched a specific membership pathway to welcome educator members, to recognise the vital work language teachers do in inspiring and training the next generation of linguists.
Membership offers professional recognition, a route to Chartership, entry on our Find-a-Linguist directory, and full access to our member-only library of CPD webinars.
