The British Council’s ELTons Innovations Awards recognise and promote innovation and excellence in English language teaching worldwide. The ELTons celebrate the organisations, teams and individuals whose original approaches, products and services shape the future of English language teaching.

This year the awards have received an impressive 110 submissions from Europe, Asia, Africa, the Americas and Australia spanning the different needs of English language learners at every age, in diverse contexts. Entries are currently being reviewed by our expert panel of judges. The finalists will be announced in March.

In 2018 we will be celebrating innovation in five categories – Excellence in Course Innovation, Innovation in Teacher Resources, Innovation in Learner Resources, Digital Innovation, and Local Innovation Award in collaboration with Cambridge Assessment English.
