Global Citizenship & Your School

Based upon years of experience working with diverse school communities in more than 116 countries, we have seen the challenges in bringing together staff, students, and parents from multiple cultures.

These challenges impact the ability of leaders to influence their community and for educators to effectively collaborate.

What actions can you take to impact your staff and community?

  • Develop and refine your leadership skills to excel in a diverse environment and avoid surprises
  • Uncover biases that can negatively impact your community and school programmes
  • Measure your intercultural competence and identify strategies to make improvements
  • Evaluate your mission and strategy for school development
  • Explore the impact of your programmes and provide guidance on how to enhance intercultural learning

We help schools develop their leaders and teachers while evaluating their educational strategy to discover new ways to live their mission. We help you engage your teachers, leaders, students, and the larger community in intentional work leading to practical development and intercultural learning.

How do we help you do this?

We help you by ensuring that global citizenship is at the centre of everything we do at CIS. You’ll experience it throughout our events, resources, member stories, CIS International Accreditation, and guidance for our member schools and communities.
