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.
A partnership to us means combined and increased impact, innovation or influence.
Our ability to work at scale with partners places us in a unique position to develop new thinking. We work with our partners to find innovative solutions to challenges, whether at a country or international level, leveraging our global networks, expertise and trust to help them achieve their goals.
We offer the local knowledge, attention to detail and cultural sensitivity which are essential to a project’s success. Our expertise in areas such as English and education make us a valued partner to national reform.
Our influence with government and the private sector gives us unique and trusted access to influencers and policy-makers.
Our highly skilled and talented staff consistently deliver above expectations. We are masters at organising conferences and events.
We are a globally trusted brand. Our brand is based on valuing people, integrity, mutuality, creativity and professionalism and is respected by government, local and international partners alike.
We can tap our expertise in running socially-minded programmes to help you achieve your goals for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). We lead on social enterprise in the Philippines and help to strengthen the operating capacity of goverment and non-governmental organisations.
Our work spans education, society and the arts and we are able to connect you to global networks of expertise in each of these areas. Our activities and exposure often go beyond country boundaries, enabling our partners to bring their activities up to an international level.
