Frequently Asked Questions

COBIS GSL World Catalyst

In order to gain the most of your online learning experience, we recommend you participate in the discussion. Please if possible have your camera and microphone switched on when you go to breakout rooms. Our facilitators will tell you when to get ready for discussions. Please note, some of the session will be focused on launch and develop successful projects; gaining greater impact in your community; and topical debates which will help with your communication and persuasive skills. There will be other topics of discussion based on the requests we receive, for example an informal forum may be set up to for participants to connect with their global peers and exchange shared interests around similar SDG goals and community projects they are currently involved with. 

It’s important that you know what you are signing up to take part in!  This programme involves both independent learning with sessions to completed on an online learning platform, as well as live online sessions with a GSL Coach. 

There are no tests to complete the programme (phew!) or to participate in the programme. You will through have all the content in English.  

As part of the programme, you will have Live Online Sessions with a GSL Coach leading, and with other participants joining from different countries. Please be aware that we will be using Zoom for Live Online Sessions.

When you register, you need to select which time you will attend the Live Online Sessions for the programme.  There are two time zone options:

15:00 to 18:45 UK Time

Please make sure you attend the full slot we have allocated – just in case we have to change the start slightly. 


The programme is all in English, and we do not provide translations of the materials.  Hopefully in the future we will be able to release a programme that is suitable for a variety of levels of English. 

We would suggest that you need to have a CEFR level (Common European Framework of Reference) of B2 or above (C1/ C2) to join this programme. 

We do not ask you to do a test to show your level, so please be aware that this is important you are sure you are happy!  If you are concerned about this, please get in touch with our team before you register. 

There are some free online tests if you want to check your level. 

We will not record sessions as a default as the live sessions are made to be interactive and involve all participants. 
In exceptional circumstances, we can discuss the possibility of recording a live session depending on the content and gaining additional consent from parents. Please note, we will need adequate notice if you need to miss an online session.

All materials will be accessible on the online learning platform. As such, you will need access to the internet as well as a webcam for live sessions. Please note, these materials must not be shared with your friends, classmates and teachers.
