British Council

The UK international curriculum is the most widely offered international curriculum globally. More than 10, 000 schools in over 160 countries provide UK international qualifications such as the IGCSE and A levels. Tens of thousands of learners use the UK International Qualifications to gain places at leading universities worldwide, including those in the UK, US, European nations, Australia, Canada and Singapore. 

The British Council promotes international collaboration and practices in education. In 2020, the “British Council Partner Schools” programme was introduced to Vietnam. The British Council Partner Schools is a global community of over 2,000 schools, actively supported by the British Council to deliver the UK international qualifications. The programme provides expert operational and educational support for our Partner Schools, supporting partner schools to improve the educational outcomes of learners. 

Why is the UK international curriculum leading the world? What are the keys to successfully integrating and delivering the UK international curriculum? How does the school optimise global support and driving force for school management, teaching, and learning? What supports and resources are available for the British Council Partner Schools in Vietnam?
