The Leading for Global Competence Journey

Our cohort-based program provides school and district leaders with the space, time, and thought partnership to reimagine education through global competence and foster lasting change. Through engaging workshops, thought-provoking dialogue, and helpful frameworks and resources, participants build the capacity to embed global competence across a district and form a supportive professional community committed to this innovative work.

What is Global Competence?

Global competence refers to the skills, values, and behaviors that empower individuals to navigate and thrive in a diverse, complex, and ever-changing world. It prepares everyone to be responsible citizens—locally and globally—creative problem solvers, and active participants in a fast-changing, interconnected economy.

A partnership with World Savvy provides multiple supports, including coaching and frameworks that educators need to transform their classrooms and embed global competence into teaching, learning, and school culture—to create future-ready schools where students develop the skills and dispositions they need for success—now and in the future.
