Are you a school administrator, leader or teacher? Do you want to deepen your skills in school management or integrate a range of skills into your curriculum?
The British Council is inviting educators to enrol for the free Core Skills training programme. The training packages give participants the tools and approaches they need to ensure effective core skills provision in their schools, including strategies for planning, monitoring and improving teaching and learning and for mapping core skills across the curriculum.
The skills were developed by experienced education professionals, and are based on extensive research.
Online courses are available to help teachers and school leaders introduce the core skills to their students and to embed the skills within the curriculum.
The six core skills are:
- Digital Literacy
- Critical thinking and problem solving
- Creativity and imagination
- Student leadership
- Collaboration and communication
