Centre for Global Citizenship Education & Inclusion
Global Citizenship & Equity Education teaches students the job skills they need for the global workforce by giving them the opportunity to collaboratively problem-solve to address challenges in their local and global communities.
This is becoming more important our world becomes increasingly connected through globalization, digital technologies and shifting migration patterns. By getting involved in this program, college students, educators and industries can work together towards innovative solutions to the social and economic problems of our time.
At Centennial College, students automatically become part of an award-winning Signature Learning Experience (SLE) that prepares them for career success in any industry. Our innovative curriculum encourages students to think beyond the local and recognize how global thinking impacts their career development. Centennial College recognizes the value of the diverse perspectives that students bring with them and leverages these within an international education program to provide Centennial graduates with a distinct advantage in the global job market.
Centennial’s SLE integrates the principles of Global Citizenship & Equity (GCE) Education into the curriculum and provides co-curricular as well as global education opportunities to support students to excel in a diverse world. Employers are increasingly expecting candidates to become job ready, able to skillfully navigate across multiple identities, cultures and countries in a globalized economy. At the same time, the public is insisting on greater social accountability and environmental sustainability from businesses, governments and service providers. GCE Education at Centennial prepares students to take on the challenges of today’s world and develop valuable job skills they can demonstrate through a digital portfolio to help them stand out with employers!
