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. We do this by making a positive contribution to the UK and 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 British Council in Uganda

The strong ties between Uganda and the UK have been cemented over the last 50 years. One of the UK’s main contributions to independent Uganda is the enhancement of skills through cultural exchange initiatives, benefitting many public sector individuals in the 1950′s, 60′s and 70′s.

In the last decade, we have changed our focus to align with the demands on the ground – with over 60% of the Ugandan population under the age of 30, there is a huge demand for skills, quality learning opportunities and qualifications as Ugandans seek employment in and outside the country. The British Council is looking to bridge this gap by sharing the UK’s expertise in the areas of English teaching and learning, building capacity in schools and communities and developing connections in the arts and creative economy.
