The UK agent and counsellor training programme aims to become the premier training initiative for all professionals working with UK education providers. Successful completion of this programme equips individual agents and counselors with comprehensive knowledge of the UK education system and effective student counseling skills.

The thoroughness of our training instills confidence in UK education providers, assuring them that they are collaborating with well-informed and ethical education agents. Equally important, it instills confidence in prospective international students, ensuring they anticipate a high-quality experience when considering studying and residing in the UK.

Upon successful completion of the training course and endorsement of the National Code of Ethical Practice for Education Agents, you will receive an online certificate from the British Council, officially recognising your knowledge and understanding. Furthermore, your credentials will be included in the Database of Certified Agents and Counsellors, a resource utilised by both students and institutions to identify potential agent partners.

Key topics covered in the training/hub include:

  • Why choose the UK?
  • The UK education system
  • Preparing students for a UK education
  • Student experience
  • Values and ethics
  • Visas and immigration
  • Post-study options
  • Working with the British Council
