About us
The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural relations. We create international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries and build trust between them worldwide.

We work in more than 100 countries and our 7000 staff – including 2000 teachers – work with thousands of professionals
 – more... and policy makers and millions of young people every year by teaching English, sharing the Arts and delivering education and society programmes.

We are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter. A core publically-funded grant-in-aid provides less than 25 per cent of our turnover which last year was £781m. The rest of our revenues are earned from services which customers around the world pay for, through education and development contracts and from partnerships with public and private organisations. All our work is in pursuit of our charitable purpose and supports prosperity and security for the UK and globally.

Out of Sight
Written by Teacher Trainer (Former Employee) from Kuala Lumpur on 28 January 2018
A typical day consisted of teaching, alot of driving and admin tasks. I learned that some companies look really good on paper. Management focused on rolling out projects without concern for their staff or target audience. The hardest part of the job was completing manager tasks as well as your own. The easiest was the end of the day.
Pros
Ability to travel
Cons
Poor management and communication
