About the British Council


 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. Using the UK’s cultural resources, we make a positive contribution to 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. The majority of our income is raised delivering a range of projects and contracts in English teaching and examinations, education and development contracts and from partnerships with public and private organisations. Eighteen per cent of our funding is received from the UK government.

The British Council in Poland performs educational activities through the teaching of English at our reputable language centres and partner schools in Warsaw, Cracow and Wroclaw, and cooperating with exam centres, which offer British language and professional exams throughout the country. Our cultural, educational and social projects aim at sharing the achievements of the United Kingdom. Working effectively with diversity and promoting equality of opportunity is an essential part of our work.

The British Council has been working with Poland since1938. In 2018 we are marking this 80th anniversary with a series of events celebrating cultural relations and exchange between the UK and Poland.
