The British Council is the United Kingdom's international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. They create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries. They do this by making a positive contribution to the UK and the countries they work with – changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust. They work with over 100 countries across the world in the fields of arts and culture, English language, education and civil society. Each year they reach over 20 million people face-to-face and more than 500 million people online, via broadcasts and publications. Founded in 1934, they are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter and a UK public body. Their work in English aims to bring high-quality language materials to every learner and teacher who wants them. In developing and post-conflict countries, they teach English and train teachers through radio, web and TV broadcasts. They offer more than three million UK examinations worldwide, helping people gain access to trusted qualifications to support their career and study prospects. Their work in education and society helps transform national education systems, builds more inclusive and open societies and increases young people’s opportunities. They encourage international students to come and study in the UK, and British students to experience life abroad. They bring schools around the world together, so young people and teachers from different countries can learn from each other. Their work in the arts involves the very best British and international artistic talent. They help increase audiences for international work in the UK and for UK work globally. They bring artists together and support the development of skills and policy in the arts and creative industries. Through this work, they ensure that culture in its broadest sense plays a vital role in connecting with and understanding each other. In these ways, the British Council builds links between UK people and institutions and those around the world, helping to create trust and lay foundations for prosperity and security around the world.
