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.

In Peru, we work to improve the quality of education of thousands of Peruvian youth through English teacher training, international assessments and higher education partnerships. We build innovative and disruptive spaces for young people through our arts work in theatre, museums and digital technologies, and address gender inequality by empowering girls in STEM and women in industry and political leadership.
