The British Council ELTons Awards Ceremony and red carpet interviews will take place live and online on Monday 18 June, 17.30-20.30 UK time.

Now in their sixteenth year, these British Council awards are the only international awards to recognise innovative products, services and research in English language teaching globally.

The awards are organised into five categories:

  • Excellence in Course Innovation 
  • Innovation in Learner Resources
  • Innovation in Teacher Resources
  • Digital Innovation
  • Local Innovation in partnership with Cambridge Assessment English

There will be one winner in each category and all the winners will be announced at the ceremony.

This year, we have once again been impressed by the high-standard of the applications and, through these awards, we are delighted to be recognising innovative ELT professionals making a significant contribution across many English language fields. The list of finalists also includes some outstanding applications in the areas of young learners, technology for ELT, ESP and life skills, among others.

The ELTons recognise new innovations and the impact these can have for English language learners, meeting demand and reflecting new learning styles. These awards are a great way to support and showcase the creativity in the sector, and to help to bring new ideas to the wider ELT community. We are looking forward to the awards ceremony in June to celebrate the new ideas that will shape English language teaching in the years to come.
