About the Teaching centre:

The Teaching Centres in Colombo, Kandy, Jaffna and partner centre in Matara represent one of the largest teaching operations in the British Council network, with over 6,000 students registered for courses each term; 60% are Young Learners aged 6-15, 40% are Secondary students and Adults with most under the age of 25. Courses are mostly book–based integrated English skills courses; students aged 16 + can register for speaking, business and exam preparation (IELTS) courses. We also deliver English skills training to private and public sector clients. Young Learner student numbers remain stable throughout the year and most students study from January through to the end of the year. Numbers of students age 16+, on the other hand, increase significantly between October and March, when a lot of teenagers are forced to take break after their O and A-level exams.
