About the British Council

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations, aimed to create international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries and build trust between them worldwide.

We work in more than 100 countries and our 7,000 staff – including 2,000 teachers – work with thousands of professionals and policy makers and millions of young people every year by teaching English, sharing the Arts and delivering education and society programmes. In Hong Kong, we have been doing this since 1948, giving people opportunities to learn, share and connect worldwide.

The British Council is a UK charity governed by Royal Charter. A core publically-funded grant-in-aid provides less than 25 per cent of its turnover, which last year was £781m. The rest of its revenues are earned from services which customers around the world pay for, through education and development contracts and from partnerships with public and private organisations. All its work is in pursuit of its charitable purpose and supports prosperity and security for the UK and globally.
