The aims of this Agent Training Programme are to increase the number, effectiveness and quality of agents working on behalf of UK schools, colleges, language centres, and universities, and to build agent capacity and professionalism in an industry that plays a key role in international student recruitment market worldwide, by conferring on suitably trained and experienced education agents/advisors, ‘British Council trained agent status’.

Benefits of taking the course
The agent will get the certificate (valid for two years) which is recognized by UK institutions and it demonstrates to students and parents that agents have gained knowledge in the areas.
As a British Council Certified agent, the agent can appear on the Global Agents List. The Global Agents list is a website on which details of all agents who have been successful in our British Council Agent Training programme over the last two years will be publicly available, subject to the agent's consent.
Agents also find the training immensely valuable, not just for the information and knowledge they gain, but also for the contacts and networks they develop doing the training.
