Initially members were drawn from university adult education departments throughout the United Kingdom. Today, with the broad spread of lifelong learning activities and international interest in adult education the membership is diverse which makes our annual international conferences very interesting and lively events. We have regular and close contact with colleagues from Australia, Canada and the US, and individual members provide strong links with the European Studies for Research in Adult Education.

SCUTREA holds a three day conference each year, usually in early July, the proceedings of which are refereed and published. Students and participants interested in research but not research active are also welcome. BEI : British Education Index. CORE. Practitioner-led Action Research 2014.

It might also help you to join a research action set of others writing their reports. The guide can be read here. COPIAN. CARN: Welcome.
