English Connects is our digital programme for all teachers and teacher educators of English worldwide, delivered through our global TeachingEnglish platforms and regional/country and partner platforms.

It provides professional development opportunities, resources, peer support and networking for a global community of English language teaching professionals and practitioners.

Through English Connects we are able to gather evidence about ELT worldwide, understand the issues teachers face, and provide a forum for UK expertise and standards. We share global perspectives and through teachers reach communities and students worldwide.The British Council’s English Connects creates and manages a global community of English language teachers and teacher educators and a suite of digital resources and content for English language teaching and teacher and teacher educator continuing professional development.

Continuing professional development for teachers and teacher educators. 

We host a series of online events with English teachers in Bangladesh to share the British Council’s online resources and discuss how these relate to the Bangladeshi curriculum.
