About Us:

 

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries. We do this by making a positive contribution to the UK and the countries we work with – changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust.

We work with over 100 countries across the world in the fields of arts and culture, English language, 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.

 

Function Overview:

 

The British Council teaching centres in Agouza, Alexandria, 6th October, City Stars and Heliopolis continue to expand in both General English (Adults and Young Learners) and Corporate Services. Classes are offered over 7 days with approximately 4,000 adults and 5,000 Young Learners per term.

Egypt plays a major role in the British Council’s ELT work across the whole Arabic-speaking region. There are excellent opportunities for further development in various directions. The centres run CELTA, distance DELTA, TYLEC and various management and general training courses.

The Early Years project is part of a global rollout of Early Years provision across the British Council network.  In partnership with Aardman studios, the British Council has developed a programme aimed at learners aged 2-5.  British Council Learning Time with Timmy programmes seek to pioneer best practice in Early Childhood Education, thereby enhancing the UK’s leadership and shared learning through international education.

Significant population growth means ensuing pressure on education provision and increasing demand for Higher Education (its scale, reach and quality) and employment. English and other business skills are in high demand as are UK qualifications. Widespread concern over the quality of public education continues to drive the growth of the private sector and the success of our teaching and exams operations in Egypt; the role of the UK IGCSE as the curriculum of choice in the private sector further enhances our market position.

The British Council enjoys a strong reputation in Egypt as the leading provider of English language courses.  Current performance of Exams and Teaching across the country is strong and there are ambitious growth targets for both businesses.

 

Role Purpose:
