Education for Global Certificate pilot is underway

The International Social Science Council (ISSC) and the  International Council for Philosophy and Human Sciences have declared 2016 to be the International Year of Global Understanding. CNISSA thought this focus provided the ideal opportunity to develop an extension course, or an opportunity within the Junior Social Studies programme, for a certificate that develops social inquiry; key competencies of the New Zealand curriculum; social action and citizenship.

CNISSA, with support and assistance from Waikato University has developed and will trial the certificate in 2017. Schools, who participate in the piloting of the certifcate will receive a teacher’s guide, advice and support on the CNISSA website throughout the pilot year (2017).  If you are interested in being a pilot school, email us through the contact us page on this website.
