Reality and future-ready learners
Just one or two generations ago a job for life was normal. Now, work and life are very fluid. Increasingly, lives revolve around a portfolio of jobs, a portfolio of places and a portfolio of contexts.
Our teachers are teachers that transform, that change people, altering fundamentally the way learners understand themselves and others, the way they engage in and contribute to their larger world.
The idea of “nationality” is changing, thus making international understanding has become vital. The ability to work with and relate to different cultures is crucial both to the new world of work, to our personal lives and to our continuing hopes for a peaceful and sustainable world.
