A self-assessment tool for Schools to identify how prepared they are to develop their students' global competence.
The Index was developed by AFS Intercultural Programs, a global organization with over 70 years of expertise in delivering state-of-the-art intercultural learning programs that build global competence, together with international education experts from around the world. It was informed by existing tools such as the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) Global Competence Framework and the Intercultural Cities Index and Benchmarking Tool by the Council of Europe.
AFS Global Competence Readiness Index for Schools supports you in making sure your students are ready for a more diverse future. It offers three key things:
It helps schools reflect and self-assess how they foster global competence
It provides an overview of the current profile of their school, including specific recommendations to keep advancing global competence development, and
It shares resources to help educators develop new or more teaching practices that advance global competence development and empower learners.
Foremost, this project helps advance AFS 2018-2022 Network Strategy Impact Area #2:Globalize Schools and Institutions. By offering a a “PISA-ready” tool to help prepare schools for PISA 2018, AFS supports educators and schools in delivering effective intercultural learning programs that build global competence. It further supports Impact Area #1: Develop Active Global Citizens (AGCs) by offering schools and educators at all levels a resource to develop and nurture how they foster this in their students. In addition to this, this project helps position AFS as the Intercultural Learning leader that schools and teachers go to as they need to prepare for the Global Competence dimensions measured by PISA 2018.
