The British Council

The British Council is the United Kingdom’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities.  We 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 global operations today.  We employ 280 full time staff across our centers in Cairo and Alexandria. We are committed to building relationships, partnerships and opportunities between the people of Egypt and the UK, driven by our desire to learn together and promote positive change and understanding.

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

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

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