The British Council builds connections, understanding and trust between people in the UK and other countries through arts and culture, education and the English language.
We help young people to gain the skills, confidence and connections they are looking for to realise their potential and to participate in strong and inclusive communities. We support them to learn English, to get a high-quality education and to gain internationally recognised qualifications. Our work in arts and culture stimulates creative expression and exchange and nurtures creative enterprise.
We have been in Singapore since 1947 and work in these centres. Every year, we reach out to thousands of students, educators, policymakers, academics, researchers, creatives and entrepreneurs in Singapore.
In Singapore, our work includes teaching English to adults and young learners aged from early years to lower primary, upper primary, secondary and study camps, one-to-one/small group private lessons, teacher development, professional skills and in-house corporate training, as well as a pre-school.
We also promote British education and training; and demonstrate the innovation, creativity and excellence of British arts, literature and design.
Our mission is to build mutually beneficial relationships between people in the UK and Singapore and to increase Singaporeans' appreciation of the UK's creative ideas and achievements.
This work is driven by our strong belief in internationalism, valuing people, a commitment to professionalism and an enthusiasm for creativity. We hold ourselves to the highest possible standards of integrity. We believe that cultural relations can help individuals and the world community to thrive.
