British Council Spain

The British Council started in Spain in 1940 and has since undertaken a major programme of activities to promote educational and cultural relations.

Many people associate the British Council with qualifications such as Cambridge First and Advanced. Although they are a fundamental part of the work, they are not the only qualifications they offer. The International English Language Testing System - IELTS is one of their most interesting ventures for young people and adults, conducted at their centres and other external premises in Spain. They also work with Teachers Associations in Spain, supporting their training and providing access to educational resources for its members. 

In addition to this, the British Council develops and participates in many different projects themed around society, science, education and the arts. In arts, they work primarily as facilitators and intermediaries. The Arts team in Spain develops relationships with cultural institutions and public organisations. Their goal is to showcase the best of UK creativity through artistic, innovative and high quality events.
