The British Council has been successfully offering training to agents since 2006. We have recently launched a new package of professional development opportunities.
About the course
The training provides a certificated qualification for education agents, counsellors and consultants who have successfully completed the Education UK Certificate training within the last 2 years, and have several years’ experience as a practitioner. The knowledge-base of agents as professionals, and of the education sectors in which they operate, continually changes. The British Council recognises that committed professionals constantly strive to update their knowledge and adapt to the changing environment through continuing professional development.
- Unit 1 introduces and develops knowledge and understanding of continual professional development, and guides and supports you in defining your role and planning your development.
- Unit 2 contains important information and guidance on recording your professional development activities, portfolio requirements, rules and regulations for completion and submission.
A minimum of 35 hours CPD must be covered and have to include the following areas:
- Education sector knowledge
- Life in the UK
- Visas and immigration
- Marketing and promotion
- Professionalism and ethics
