The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities.
British Council creates international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries and builds trust between them worldwide. British Council has worked and engaged with the people for Bahrain for 80 years and has brought the two nations closer through both cultural and educational exchange.
The organisation is widely recognised for the excellence of its English courses and has taught multiple generations of Bahrainis and expatriates. Its Teaching Centre attracts more than 6,500 students annually, with over 19,000 class hours taught to the highest standard. The British Council in Bahrain has also been recognised with the Child Safety Award and continues its efforts in maintaining the facility and curriculum to the highest quality.
British Council is also a trusted distributer of a variety of globally recognised exams, including IELTS, IGCSE, and Cambridge Admissions tests with more than 12,000 students taking a variety of English school, university and professional exams. It also offers a range of teaching qualifications for both those with little or no experience and those who want to improve their effectiveness.
And it recently introduced the option to take the IELTS exam by computer – which means greater convenience and ease for students. By taking the test on a computer at the British Council’s centre, test-takers will get more flexibility, more test dates to choose from and results are available in just five to seven days.
On the cultural front, British Council is involved in arts, sports, science, skills development and higher education. They delivered more than 55 activities in 2018, engaging 13 higher education institutes that included 4,000 parents and students as well as 436 teachers. Team members collaborated with more than 200 researchers and have captured an online audience of over 188,000 people. Staff have also worked with multiple ministries in order to give amazing opportunities for growth and improvement to as many people as possible.
British Council is once again opening its doors to welcome thousands of children and adults onto its English courses, designed to boost language skills with new and innovative teaching products. This year they have also introduced a monthly installment scheme with auto payment options which will ensure that their students can continue their uninterrupted journey to learn English.
