The British Council’s network of life-changing programmes and initiatives are very broad. It offers English and examinations in more than 50 countries, running tests such as the IELTS English-language standardized test and the University of Cambridge, ESOL Examinations; It organizes the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), the English for Peace Initiative, Erasmus+, FiveFilms4Freedom, SelectorRadio, Shakespeare Lives, Young Creative Entrepreneur Awards – which seeks to identify and support talented people across the various creative industries.
