Child protection

We recognise that we have a fundamental duty of care towards all children we engage with, including a duty to protect them from abuse. We achieve this through compliance with UK child protection laws and relevant laws in each of the countries in which we operate, as well as by adherence to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), 1989. Our child protection policy is mandatory for all British Council staff and job applicants will be assessed regarding their suitability to work with children.
