Ambitious? Yes. Which is why education is so critical to the programme’s success. At Britt, we follow the Knotion Education Platform where work has been developed to directly support and raise awareness of these goals so our students are aware of their role in the wider world and the difference they can make.
Marcela RodriguezEducation Expert, Knotion
Education is essential to seek sustainable development. The only way to ensure that there is a permanent and lasting change is to generate a change in the way of thinking and acting of the new Generations. This is where educational agents have a fundamental role.
[all educators] must make a call to those spaces in which there is access to education so that it is transformed into an education of value, an education for global citizenship, an education that fosters enabling the skills necessary for today's world and sustainable development.
What our students learn through our curriculum and our school values, encourages them to care about their community and make the right life choices. One area of our curriculum that supports these goals is our global citizens' lessons, which all students take on a weekly basis. Global citizens are people who care about the world beyond their own borders and act to make it better.
We’re very proud of the people that our Britt Panthers become and the example they set within our welcoming school community.
