How will my child progress in their knowledge, skill and understanding in International Understanding?

Progression of Knowledge Skills and Understanding (KSU):  International Understanding


Through IPC International Understanding tasks, learners will gain knowledge of global issues and how identities affect perspectives. They will also know about the Sustainable Development Goals and the organisations involved in global affairs.


The International Learning Goals directly contribute to developing the skills a person needs to be globally competent, future ready, socially conscious and motivated to positively contribute locally and globally.


Learners will develop an understanding of the complexity of global and local challenges through making personal connections and developing empathy for individuals affected by a range of situations. They will aim to understand the changing nature of issues, evaluating potential responses for effectiveness and impact. 


The Learning Goals in International Understanding can be identified as Knowledge (Know), Skills (Be able to) and Understanding (Understand).
