Venezuela is a challenging operating environment.  The country has some of the largest oil and gas reserves in the world, however there is a perception that the wealth these have generated has tended to stay in the hands of the rich, or gone overseas, and that this has exacerbated the considerable gap between rich and poor.

There is a considerable and enthusiastic market amongst our target audiences for what the British Council has to offer, especially in the areas of English, the internationalisation of education and the arts, and significant potential for income generation, sponsorship and partner funding.

The teaching centre currently employs approximately 19 teachers of English on both full time and hourly paid contracts and teaches English to 1,200 adults and young learners in each of the 5 terms every year.  There are several projects in progress to develop the business, in particular, an intensive summer course programme and an off site premises project for young learners.  We will be looking to grow the business for both adults and young learners in the coming year.
