We have shaped our programme based on this Learning Compass which has focused on what knowledge, skills, attitudes and values students’ need today to thrive in and shape their world.
The GSL Catalyst and Accelerator courses are shaped to focus on building knowledge, skills attitudes and values through independent learning as well as live sessions connecting young people. We believe in building the right attitude and values in young people as the foundation for GSL courses.
Reflection is a key component to any GSL course, as part of the learning process; encouraging young people to reflect on their experience throughout the programme, their own individual learning and building their insight. “We do not learn from experience. We learn from reflecting on experience.” [Dewey (1933:78)]
The Learning Compass highlights the need for “students to learn to navigate by themselves through unfamiliar contexts” [OECD Learning Compass 2030].
Through GSL, students will learn to be the Captain of their own ship!
