The British Council is the United Kingdom’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. Our purpose is to create international opportunities for the people of the UK and other countries and build trust between them worldwide.

The first British Council’s office in Morocco opened in 1960 in Rabat. In 2002 and we opened a teaching centre in Casablanca.

We work in four key areas: English, arts, education and society, with a focus on young learners and the themes of ‘employability’ and ‘voice’. We aim to support young people to achieve the education and skills needed to maximise their future careers and give them a 'voice' in society.

  • English: we work with universities and partners to provide continuous professional development for learners and teachers throughout Morocco.
  • Arts: we showcase contemporary works from the UK, and develop skills for the creative sector.
  • Education: we build links between the UK and Morocco’s higher education sector, including university partnerships and the internationalisation of higher education.
  • Society: we help Moroccan women and young people to gain the skills and confidence to speak up and be heard.
