CONTEXT AND ENVIRONMENT
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.

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 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.
In Pakistan, we have been working since 1948 in the areas of arts, education and English in all four provinces as well as in Pakistan Administered Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan and FATA through our offices in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad.
Pakistan has a very young population, while few of them experience the prospects for education and employment enjoyed in the West. By extending the range of opportunities for educational and personal development available to young people, the British Council is playing its role in strengthening Pakistani society as well as bringing together people from both countries.
Our programmes in Pakistan are mainly focussed on young people from the ages of 12 to 30. With the aim of building positive engagement within Pakistan and with the UK, we work toward improving educational opportunities, giving a voice to young people, developing employable skills and strengthening links between universities in Pakistan and the UK. Underpinning all this is the English language as a vehicle for international understanding and for educational opportunity.
We have provided training to over 25,000 government teachers in the last three years under our English Programme, while since 2009, more than 40,000 youth have been mobilised for community development under the Active Citizens Programme. We also bring UK qualifications in Pakistan, which offer world-class potential and life changing opportunities for youth.
