What we do for colleges and training providers

The British Council's Vocational Partnerships team advises UK vocational training providers interested in the international dimension of vocational training.

We are also managing agents for European programmes and the Prime Minister's Initiative (PMI) - a campaign to recruit international students to UK further education colleges.
