About the British Council

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries. Using the UK’s cultural resources, we make a positive contribution to the countries we work with – changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust. We have and will continue to create opportunities for tens of thousands of young people across Kuwait to learn English, develop new skills, discover new art forms, and study and do research in the UK. In addition to teaching English, we also support cultural and educational collaboration in other areas and work closely with local partners. We work closely with the Ministry of Education on teacher development and on a reading programme for children. Over 30,000 people in Kuwait use our online resources for independent learning of English each year. We work with over 100 countries across the world in the fi elds of arts and culture, English language, education and civil society. Each year we reach over 20 million people face-to-face and more than 500 million people online, via broadcasts and publications
