Office Closure

The British Council in South Sudan is temporarily closed and our activity is suspended. We remain committed to resuming our operations in South Sudan as soon as the situation permits.

Our thoughts are with the people of South Sudan as they endure this difficult time.

For general enquiries please contact +211955177100 or +254722419898; alternatively please email to info@ss.britishcouncil.org.

The British Council is the UK's leading international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations. We work in more than 100 countries with over 10,000 leaders and decision-makers each year. Using expertise derived from our work with education ministries and policy makers around the world we will support the Government of South Sudan in its education policy and bring together partners who can fund and deliver the work.

For more information about our services and programmes, please browse through the list below or contact us via the links to the left.

We also administer university/higher institution exams such as ACCA, CIPS, University of London exams, Cambridge International College exams, Herriot Watt University exams, to mention just a few.

Go4English: an English language learning website for Arabic speakers.
English for Policy Makers: a programme that supports language networking, curriculum reform and works with ministries and universities.
Engaging Teachers: English language capacity building, English Forum and teacher training.
English for Learners: new radio products for teachers and learners of English that includes Learn English Mobile.
Education and Society
Connecting Classrooms: our school partnership programme that promotes intercultural dialogue through partnerships between schools in South Sudan, the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
DelPHE: The Delphe programme was a successful project which was implemented in several countries in the region. It ended in March 2013 and DfiD gave a very good rating. As the programme is now closed, there has been a selection of projects to represent each of the Millennium Development Goals. The selected case studies are from Uganda, Ethiopia, Nigeria and Sudan. The cases show how much can be achieved with a comparatively small amount of funding, partners that are well-matched and lots of enthusiasm and support from staff and students at the institutions who took part in DelPHE to make their projects work. Please view the DelPHE case studies document.
Active Citizens: Our first Active Citizens programme trained 40 community leaders who are now engaged in pilot projects in their communities across South Sudan.

Springboard: We have trained 15 Springboards trainers and delivered training to a further 35 women from a range of organizations and NGOs. The programme has been endorsed by the Ministry of Gender Child and Social Welfare.

We are using British Council products and expertise to develop a teacher training capacity which will deliver CiPELT, CiSELT and EfT to teachers across South Sudan and are working with the Ministry to develop a framework for English language proficiency across sectors.

We have brokered a relationship between The Curriculum Foundation and the Ministry of Educations Science and Technology to develop a National Curriculum for South Sudan.


Arts and Development: a project developing the arts scene through events, training and mentoring. Through our arts work we will support the development of a creative economy and together with our partners will deliver activity that will contribute to the nation building agenda. We will aim specifically to develop the capacity of those who work in the creative sectors through joint projects and collaborative working.

  • We will continue to work with South Sudanese film makers through partnership with the Sheffield Film Festival and our support of the South Sudan Film Festival.
  • In partnership with UK creative consultants Metaphor we will work with the South Sudanese Ministry of Culture, the London Globe and UNESCO to establish a Juba Globe.
  • We will deliver a Forum Theatre pilot in 2014 to build the capacity of facilitations who will use the methodology to address issues of conflict resolution and social cohesion at a community level.
  • We will support the South Sudan Theatre Organization to deliver drama workshops to secondary school students across South Sudan.
