Advantage Teachers is the British Council's online support platform for teachers and leaders.

It is a free online professional development hub for teachers at Advantage member schools and educational institutions.

Through Advantage, we are committed to building a community together of highly motivated teachers who want to interact with other teachers and who are able to access to the latest resources in the field of education and assessment.

Advantage Teachers offers a variety of online activities including:

  • self-access training modules
  • discussion forums
  • resources connected to exam preparation and teaching
  • monthly webinars and more

Our aim is to support teachers and leaders in your professional development and providing you with resources that help prepare learners for international certificates such as the Cambridge English exams. 

This unique platform enables educators to personalise content and exchange ideas and experiences with teachers from other British Council Advantage members around the world, at a time and place that best suits them.
