Partnership is at the heart of everything we do at the British Council and it has been since we started in 1934. We are driven by our mission to build trust and opportunity globally and we have ambitious goals that can only be achieved by working with others. In the Philippines our partners include trusted governmental organisations, top educational institutes and leading corporations. They are as diverse as our global networks.
