Important information on COVID-19 for British Council customers and partners

English Teaching Centre 

As we return to face-to-face classes for our Adult General English courses (Myclass), we have put in place several precautionary measures in our teaching centres for your safe return.

These include:

·         Temperature checks on entry to the buildings

·         Hand sanitizer stations in every room

·         Classroom desks spaced at least a meter apart 

·         Thorough cleaning of classroom surfaces between every lesson

·         All students and parents/guardians accompanying them will be required to wear a mask while on the British Council premises. 

·         Saturday classes will have staggered start/finish times to avoid overcrowding inside the building. 

Please help us to stay safe, by ensuring your child wears a mask while they are on British Council premises, and by providing stationery items so that kids don’t need to share resources

Should you have any questions on how to join our classes, please do not hesitate to contact our customer services team via telephone+251-116-174300 or email 

Our commitment to the safety of our students as well as to their continued access to learning remains unwavering.
