The Board of Trustees acts as the guardian of the British Council’s purpose and is ultimately accountable for the organisation. Chaired by Stevie Spring CBE, the trustees hold the Senior Leadership Team to account for the organisation’s performance, strategy and policy.

The Senior Leadership Team is responsible for the overall strategy, direction and management of the British Council.

To help us with the quality and independence of our thinking, we draw on expert advice from sector advisory groups and UK country advisory committees.
