  • Our Business

    We work with over 100 countries across the world in the fields of arts and culture, English language, education and civil society. Last year we reached over 80 million people directly and 791 million people overall including online, broadcasts and publications. Founded in 1934, we are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter and a UK public body.

  • Learning and development

    Commitment to the supported learning and development of colleagues is very important to us. Career conversations with your line manager will help you plan, our online learning system will help you grow and your manager will identify ways to bring your learning to life.
