What is a Special Interest Group?

A Special Interest Group is a community within a larger organisation with shared interests. The aim of SIGs is to share information and develop a wider knowledge base within the field of interest. HELTASA in particular has special interest groups in professional development, tutoring and mentoring, writing centres, foundation programs, AD leaders program and first year successes.
