Hello and welcome to our website!

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We work in more than 100 countries, connecting millions of people with the United Kingdom through programmes and services in the English language, the arts, education and society. In these ways, we help to create trust and lay foundations for prosperity and security around the world. In Mexico, we have worked for more than 75 years in building relationships between national institutions, artists, cultural and educational organisations, teachers, researchers, university leaders and many more.

As Country Director for the British Council Mexico, my main objective is to lead our talented team in order to increase friendly knowledge and understanding between the UK and Mexico by developing a wider knowledge of the UK and the English language. Also, to change –and improve– lives through access to UK education, skills, qualifications, culture and society; to make people engage with the UK’s culture and arts, education, diversity and openness; to grow cultural and education exports through the market intelligence and business opportunities we share with our UK partners; to create more opportunities for the UK to innovate and, finally to support the development of educational and arts institutions in both countries through the links we help them to establish.

We will achieve this by staying true to our values: quality, customer care and professionalism, but also through an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion focus across all our work. I am certain that we will continue creating and strengthening our bonds with the Mexican people and institutions by innovating and diversifying the ways that we engage with them for the years to come.

 

Kind regards,

Kevin Mackenzie
