Please note that individual STSG membership is separate to ABTT membership, although joining both organisations is encouraged. Subs are due annually and can be paid by BACS, cheque or online via Paypal; either personally or by your school.
Please note there is a small admin fee for online payments.
New members can join for free until the first renewal, at which time we hope you will decide to remain as a paying member. Subs are due in January, but new members joining between September-December don't have to pay until the following year. (The free period only applies to individual membership applicants.)
If you are already an ABTT member, please join us for free, then contact the ABTT Office at the next renewal to register your STSG membership.
Please also read our Constitution, which includes our Privacy & Data Handling Policy (Section 9), and forms the terms and conditions of membership.
If you have any problems with the application system, please contact the Group Administrator.
