Child protection policy

read article about child protection policy
The British Council follows a strict child protection policy, in accordance with UK Child Protection laws.

This ensures that children that the British Council is responsible for (as part of teaching or project work) do not come to any harm.

You can read the British Council Child Protection policy here.

Examples of how this policy is implemented include:

  • Strict guidelines for ensuring teachers of under 18s are suitably qualified and fit to teach young people.
  • Guidelines about not sharing images of children without the written consent of their parents. This is why, for example, we ask you not to share photos of your learners on padlet.

Over to you

  • Does your institution have a child protection policy? What does it cover?
