Micro-credential in Leading Education for Global Competence

Prepare students for 21st century global citizenship by completing our free micro-credential

Would you like to feel more confident about addressing tricky conversations in the classroom about global and local social issues like the Black Lives Matter movement, COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing controversy about Australia Day?

At a time when some of the values that bind our communities together are under immense pressure, it’s never been more important to develop students as global citizens who are critically literate, socially connected and ethically responsible.

If you’re a Queensland educator in an early years, primary or secondary setting, you currently have an exciting opportunity to access the latest global citizenship resources and transformative teaching strategies via a free micro-credential, delivered in partnership with CQUniversity.

This micro-credential is part of the GLC’s flagship Global Citizenship Education: A passport to social cohesion’ program, which was first delivered to educators across Queensland in 2017.

By completing the micro-credential, you will:

  • explore the need for education for global citizenship/global competence and its link to social cohesion
  • explore the theory, intent and strategies of education for global citizenship/global competence, including how to engage young people with topics of diversity and inclusion
  • develop the leadership skills needed to foster a culture of global citizenship in an educational context
  • review signature strategies designed to effectively embed education for global citizenship/global competence in existing curricula and pedagogies.
