The British Council are committed to safeguarding everyone we interact and work with. To support this, we carry out background screening of all new employees in line with the applicable laws, regulations and British Council’s Safeguarding policies for Adults and Children. These checks cover areas such as employment and qualification verification, identity and criminal record, financial probity and barred lists.

We believe that all children and adults everywhere in the world deserve to live in safe environments and have the right to be protected from all forms of abuse, maltreatment and exploitation as set out in article 19, UNCRC (United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child) 1989.
