Why partner with the British Council through Addvantage?

Our heritage.

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries. We do this by making a positive contribution to the UK and the countries we work with – changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust. 

Our work in English aims to bring high-quality language materials to every learner and teacher who wants them. In developing and post-conflict countries, we teach English and train teachers through radio, web and TV broadcasts. We offer more than three million UK examinations worldwide, helping people gain access to trusted qualifications to support their career and study prospects.

We have been working in Slovakia since 1946, offering a wide range of services and activities, in English teaching, testing and in supporting teachers of English. No other examination centre in Slovakia can rival our unparalleled 72 years’ experience in delivering international exams.

Our expertise.

Over 70 examination boards and educational institutions trust us to deliver their exams around the world. We are recognised for our integrity and professionalism in delivering high-quality exam services and English teaching and training. Our expert level of knowledge and skill in examination management ensures the delivery of exams is 100 per cent secure, transparent and fully compliant with exam board regulations.  

We can organise exam day sessions from small to very large groups of candidates for a wide range of exam dates and locations. Your students can take exams in a modern and comfortable venue or we may be able to organise the exam at your school. The exams we offer are widely known and recognised by schools, universities and employers in Slovakia and around the world. We are leaders in delivering computer-based tests.

Your assurance.

When you register your students to take exams with the British Council you will enjoy the benefits of working with a trusted and professional organisation. We care about your students’ success in exams and in their lives beyond the classroom. You can rest assured that we listen to your assessment needs and tailor our exam services to meet them. 

Our dedicated exams team works together with you to make sure the exam registration process is easy. On the day of the exam our highly-trained and approachable staff ensure that everyone’s experience of taking an exam with us is positive and fair. We are committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for children and adults to take exams. 

Your advantage.

As an Addvantage member you will receive an attractive package of benefits and enhanced services according to your membership level along with our commitment to you as one of our partners. Addvantage offers your students and teachers support and training with exam preparation. We provide parents with information and guidance about exams and organise events and competitions to motivate your students and celebrate their success.

Addvantage is more than exams alone. It’s about helping students, teachers and schools to perform to the best of their ability and benefit from everything the British Council has to offer in resources for learning, teaching and assessing English and developing cultural relations with the UK.
