The Vision for Learning has a focus on achievement, equity and well-being and sets the global competencies as a foundation for deep learning. Student achievement that leads to positive results can be attained by changing the learning process to reflect the needs of our students by providing them with opportunities to build their global competencies. These competencies foster deep learning through engaging experiences that incorporate creativity, inquiry, entrepreneurship, collaboration, leadership, communication, global citizenship, character, critical thinking and problem solving. Please see the Research page for further reading and resources on Global Competencies.
