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

The British Council’s office in Egypt was established in 1938 as one of our first overseas offices, and it remains one of our most important operations today.  We are delighted to be celebrating our 75th anniversary in Egypt in 2013.

We work in three key areas: Arts, English and Education and Society, with a focus on young people.  The themes of ‘employability’ and ‘voice’ cut across all the work we do: 

Employability – to support young people to achieve the education, qualifications and skills needed to gain a job.

Voice – to develop new and existing platforms and tools to support young people seeking to have their voices heard.

Teaching English and delivering UK qualifications in Egypt are a key part of what we do.
