British Council is UK's international organisation for educational and cultural relations and manages a wide range of activities covering the arts, science, technology and education, regularly employing TEFL certified teachers. Working for the British Council offers you a unique opportunity to gain experience and develop skills. Jobs with the British Council offer scope for versatility, initiative and creativity in a stimulating and supportive environment.

Egypt plays a major role in the British Council’s ELT work across the whole Arabic-speaking region. The British Council currently has three teaching centres in Cairo: the main centre in Agouza, a smaller centre in Heliopolis. We have recently opened a new teaching centre in Alexandria with a selection of adult courses available, and children’s courses. Another was launched in Alexandria in February 2014. The centres continue to expand in both General English (Adults and Young Learners) and Corporate Services, and a further branch is due to be launched in the future. 

Accordingly, we are regularly looking to recruit enthusiastic and motivated TEFL-I qualified teachers with teaching experience looking for an interesting place to live, work and develop. A UK or Egyptian passport is essential. Teachers are expected to teach the full range of courses for Young Learners and Adult courses, including General English, Conversation, Business English and IELTS preparation.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


In this unit I looked at some of the most common problem situations that teachers can encounter in the classroom and also suggest ways of dealing with them. First lesson,warmers different levels large class , use of native language , reluctant students and difficulties with listening texts. In new teaching position a teacher will be faced with meeting a number of new classes for the first time.From this unit , I learned that writing skill and speaking skill are equally important, but sometimes people ignore the importance of the writing skill. I also learned that the difference between accuracy and fluency activities. Accuracy is more concerned with writing skill. Fluency is more concerned with speaking skill. we have plenty of games and techniques to ask the students to participate.
