Press releases

Standard press release templates are available from the British Council Press Office. All press releases should include the standard ‘boilerplate’ at the bottom, which contains basic information about the organisation and informs the media and public about who we are and what we do.

The ‘boilerplate’ should be in Arial at point size 9. Ideally, the ‘boilerplate’ text should be smaller than the body text in the press release.
