Global Citizenship Education (GCE) has gained momentum in recent years, as reflected by initiatives like PISA’s 2018 Global Competence test, and the inclusion of GCE in Target 4.7 of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal on Education.
Educators play a pivotal role in this movement by developing globally aware students who are critically literate, socially connected and ethically responsible.
Middle leaders in particular are uniquely poised to influence a school culture that develops the knowledge, skills and attitudes of students as global citizens.
The Global Leaders Development Program provides a golden opportunity for middle leaders to:
- develop their own global competence
- strengthen their leadership capabilities
- enhance their knowledge and understanding of 21st century global competencies in the Australian Curriculum, and
- undertake action research with a colleague to inform a strategy that strengthens GCE in their school context.
The program is delivered by the GLC in collaboration with CQUniversity and the Queensland Education Leadership Institute (QELi) as part of its broader professional learning program ‘Global Citizenship Education: A passport to social cohesion’, and is fully funded for Queensland educators.
