APIBA Asociacion de Profesores de Ingles de Buenos Aires

The Asociación de Profesores de Inglés de Buenos Aires (A.P.I.B.A.) is a professional, non-profit Association whose members are fully-qualified Argentine English teachers, graduates of official and officially-recognized educational institutions in Argentina (teacher training colleges and universities).

A.P.I.B.A. was founded in 1971 to address key professional needs. Ever since then A.P.I.B.A. has provided English teachers with a permanent forum where issues can be discussed. Its traditional Annual Seminar contributes to keeping teachers up-to-date by offering them the opportunity of discussing with specialists and colleagues the latest research and experiences in the teaching of English as a foreign language.

Throughout the academic year, A.P.I.B.A. also addresses teachers’ specific needs by means of workshops and lectures which cover a wide range of topics. To encourage the participation of teachers and trainees working and studying away from the City of Buenos Aires, these activities are frequently held at educational centres located in cities or towns in Greater Buenos Aires or areas in the Province of BA with no local Teacher Association.

Aware of the need to enhance inter-cultural understanding, A.P.I.B.A. also provides its members with the opportunity of communicating first-hand with English-speaking foreign colleagues visiting Argentina on exchange programmes through panel discussions and informal talks. Finally, A.P.I.B.A. also represents its members in negotiations with education authorities.
