Teaching English and delivering UK qualifications are a key part of what we do in Jordan.

English language 

Worldwide, 300,000 learners took part in British Council teaching centre classes last year. We delivered more than 1.3 million hours of English lessons in over 80 teaching centres and partner premises in 49 countries. We reached nearly 100 million students via broadcasts, print and digital English teaching. Downloads of our mobile applications have exceeded one million.

In Jordan, we teach around 50,000 hours of English to approximately 5,000 learners each year. 


Last year, over 2 million people in 90 countries took English, school and professional exams with us, more than 8,000 of them in Jordan.

Support for teachers

Every year we support almost 5 million English language teachers around the world. We help improve the quality of teaching in national schools and higher and further education systems through policy work and teacher training programmes. In Jordan, we have a long history of such partnerships and recently we have focused on extending our work to disadvantaged communities.  

Programmes and events

During 2012, over 20,000 people visited exhibitions and festivals supported by the British Council in Jordan, and through our projects and programmes we engaged with a further 6,000 people.
