British Council is seeking proposals for its Impact of Providing Young People in the UK with an International Experience to appoint well qualified and experienced researchers to review the existing evidence of the impact of its work providing young people in the UK with an international experience, and to provide a strong conceptual framework to support implementation of the British Council’s ambition to ensure every young person in the UK, aged 4-30 years, has international experience.

The British Council is the United Kingdom’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities.  Its purpose is:

  • making a positive contribution to all the countries they work with; and

SCO37733).  It is also an executive non-departmental public body, with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office as its sponsoring department.

Its primary charitable objects are set out in the Charter and are stated to be to:

  • Promote cultural relationships and the understanding of different cultures between people and peoples of the United Kingdom and other countries;
  • Promote a wider knowledge of the United Kingdom;
  • Develop a wider knowledge of the English language;
