Inclusive Education

“Inclusion is at the heart of everything we do. By involving everyone in the conversation we learn from each other and bring together all of our experience, knowledge and expertise to do the best work that we can.” (British Council Values, 2021)

As one of our values states, our work is based on building meaningful, enduring and respectful relationships across different cultures. 

The British Council teaches English to adults and young learners globally and this encompasses a wide range of learners with diverse needs. At the British Council, we celebrate this diversity and believe all learners are entitled to a high-quality English language learning experience regardless of their age, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, nationality, cultural background, physical ability or educational needs. 

At the British Council, all learners are valued equally, treated with respect and provided with equal opportunities. By working together in inclusive classes, all students learn with, and from, each other while developing empathy and an understanding of differences.

What will we do?

Our Inclusion Policy promotes equality of opportunity and diversity both as an employer and as a provider of cultural and educational programmes to children, teenagers and adults. We are committed to making classrooms inclusive and will make reasonable adjustments to support students with disabilities and/or special educational needs. 

Please contact indiacustomercare@britishcouncil.org and let us know if you have any additional support needs so we can make arrangements and work with you to better ensure your full inclusion. Once notified, we will arrange a telephone or video conference before the course starts. We may also offer trial access to our online activities to the session to assess any barriers to study with us. This information will be used to formulate an individual plan for the student, enabling us to optimise our teaching methods to better suit you.  

What will we not do? 

We are strongly committed to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. We act against discrimination and focus on the fair treatment of all our students. We will not:

  • refuse to offer a learner with a special educational need or disability a place because of their impairment or offer them a place on less favourable terms than a learner who is not disabled
  • treat a learner less favourably in any aspect of the Teaching Centre’s activities

Sometimes, it is not possible to offer a place for the student because they do not meet our entry requirements (e.g. literacy skills do not correspond with what is needed for students undertaking that level of study). In some cases, we may not accept a student in our course because we are not able to provide consistent and sustainable support. The decision to not allow a student to register (or continue) is not made lightly and is based upon a consideration of all factors related to the individual case. The outcome is at the discretion of the centre’s Academic Manager.
