VATE offers both Individual and Organisational membership. All staff members of an Organisation can be added to its membership and enjoy the benefits of belonging to VATE.        
The Primary Contact listed can add, update and remove members any time throughout the year. 

Please note that the VATE membership period is from 1 January to 31 December.

Renewals for the following year are emailed in November each year. (Pro rata discounts are not available.) 

Memberships are not transferrable or refundable.

Life members and 2 year individual members entering into their second year do not need to renew membership – this will be done for you. 



Have you or your school been a member before?

Please only use this portal to create a NEW VATE membership. If you wish to renew your existing membership, this can be done through 'My Account' once you are logged in.

Please note that only the Head of English or designated Primary Contact can renew an Organisational membership.
Make sure to keep your colleagues connected by managing your school members through the Organisational Members tab under 'My account'. You can add and remove members at any time.
