Schoolchildren answering a question in class

The British Council has worked with schools around the world for over 80 years, building a wealth of experience and a global network of educators. We work collaboratively with policy makers, school leaders and teachers to implement system reforms based on international best practice that align with local policies and processes.  

Our success stories show some of the ways we have helped improve learning outcomes for young people in schools around the world.
