Teacher helping children study

We are committed to making your child’s learning a successful, enjoyable, and positive experience. At the same time, we strongly believe that children’s learning is even more effective when parents and teachers work together.

The experts

We are an international organisation you can trust. The British Council has a global reputation built on 80 years of teaching English to more than 100 million people. Our reputation is built on quality and professionalism and is trusted everywhere. Our teachers, our teaching centres, our learning materials and online support will always be designed to put your child’s personal development and safety at heart. You can make an appointment to meet your child’s teacher or one of our dedicated Academic Managers at any time to discuss how to further support your child’s learning at home.

Homework help

Home-study plays an important part in learning. Your child will receive a variety of homework tasks including traditional exercises and creative tasks. Throughout the year, we run workshops for parents of children aged 6-12 designed to help them support home-study. In these workshops we examine ways of helping children learn from the world around them and provide practical tips to make children’s learning enjoyable and memorable.
