Skills and Competencies
Educational excellence is a fundamental part of our students’ future successes and therefore forms one of Globeducate´s core principles. However, Globeducate offers much more than a purely academic training, providing a wide range of co-curricular opportunities to complement personal, social and cognitive development.
Our comprehensive educational vision is complemented by music, arts and sports programmes; areas in which, as well as acquiring a whole range of additional skills, students learn values such as discipline, teamwork, respect, perseverance and determination.
Our Globeducate Agenda launched in 2020, partnering with WWF and Eco Schools, underwrites the United Nations´ 2030 Global Sustainable Development Goals. It unites our students and teachers from around the world to partake in active discussions, workshops, fundraising and projects to address these goals. As educators we have the opportunity and responsibility to lay the foundations for a better future.
Sport plays an essential role in our school curricula. Beyond the obvious health and fitness benefits associated with physical activity, sport is an ideal way to teach students the values that we believe to be fundamental in personal development including teamwork, cooperation, leadership, discipline, determination and commitment. Globeducate offers a wide variety of sporting opportunities throughout our schools including football, rugby, cricket, basketball, golf, sailing and horse riding. Thanks to the excellent facilities and outstanding coaching staff available at our schools around the world, our students can enjoy these activities at a recreational or a more advanced level.
Art and music as a way of life
Art is another discipline that plays a key role in personal growth, developing creative skills, imaginative thinking and self-expression, and it forms an integral part of life at our schools. Among the arts disciplines taught at our schools, we specialise in visual arts, drama and dance, and offer magnificent facilities for their practice and enjoyment. Music is a way of life in Globeducate schools. Several of our schools are renowned music conservatories and many others are affiliated with prestigious music schools and centres.
We encourage each student to actively participate in musical activities and events, and music forms part of our students’ daily lives. In addition to the development of instrumental, vocal and technical skills, amongst other things, music instils sensitivity, creativity, self-discipline, teamwork and attention to detail. Our annual Globeducate International Music Festival brings together around 200 young musicians and our Globeducate Arts Competition allows children of all ages and abilities to compete in disciplines such as photography, performing arts, creative writing, painting and poetry, around themes that are set each year.
