JTA Member Benefits

Membership benefits of the JTA evolve, as members come up with new ideas of how the JTA can help them! At the moment, our benefits of membership include:

  • "JTA News" - an e-newsletter published three times a year, packed with information on issues ranging from health to teaching advice, bellydance in the news and legal updates

So far, events have included subjects such as disabiity awareness, marketing, body awareness, risk assessment and alternative ways of teaching.
