Introducing this issue of HLT Magazine
2009 is a special year for Pilgrims as we celebrate our 35th anniversary as leaders in Humanistic Teaching and Teacher Training and the 10th anniversary of HLT.
To celebrate these achievements we are holding a major one-week conference here in the UK this August:
HUMANISTIC TEACHING IN THE 21st CENTURY

This one week event includes:
