ABOUT YOUR BEHAVIOURS OR COMPETENCIES  
As we all know, performing successfully in a post requires more than a suitable academic and working background; therefore, we are looking for you to demonstrate the behaviours that are key to our organisation, such as: Making it happen, Working together, Being accountable, Shaping the future, Connecting with others, Creating shared purpose.  

WHY SHOULD YOU APPLY

Because you will be joining an international organisation that is looking to promote educational opportunities and cultural relations of the United Kingdom, and you will also have the opportunity work for a team that operates in over 140 countries globally.  

We work with over 100 countries across the world in the fields of English language, arts and culture, education and civil society. Each year we reach over 20 million people face-to-face and more than 500 million people online, via broadcasts and publications. Founded in 1934, we are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter and a UK public body. 

Mexico faces a number of challenges in improving the quality of its basic and vocational education systems which have nearly 30 million students, and the UK is well placed to provide curriculum development advice, policy development guidance through policy dialogues and capacity building in areas such as English language teaching, school leadership, core and 21st century skills, quality assurance and teacher education to help raise standards.
