From December 2018, we will no longer provide face to face English language courses.
We will instead invest in delivering, from our Jerusalem and Ramallah centres, digital English and soft skills training online designed to help more young Palestinians become employable. We will expand the delivery of English from Jerusalem and Ramallah to 5,000 people across Palestine by 2021, with a focus on digital entrepreneurs, outsourcers and freelancers and wider student audiences.
We are committed more than ever to increase our work in English in Palestine, by supporting the Ministry of Education and Higher Education and UNRWA to improve the standards of English language teaching in schools throughout Palestine. Last year, more than 1500 teachers from governmental and UNRWA schools took part in our training programmes.
We are continuing all our exams and UK qualifications provision, including IELTS and Cambridge English. The British Council’s work in arts, society and education in the Occupied Palestinian Territories will continue - the only change is to our provision of public English courses.
We have a wide range of free online resources and apps to help support you and your child’s learning. The resources include videos, mobile apps, games, stories, listening activities and grammar exercises.
Those interested in online learning can continue to visit our LearnEnglish website.
The British Council has a wide range of free online resources to help adults, teenagers and children learn English. The resources include videos, mobile apps, games, stories, listening activities and grammar exercises.
We hope to offer further learning opportunities to mobile users in Palestine. More information on these mobile-compatible resources will be available soon.
