VIDEO: Cambridge Global Perspectives - critical thinking skills for a global society.
Cambridge Global Perspectives is an innovative and stimulating skills-based programme that places academic study in a practical, real-world context. It provides students with the opportunity to cultivate the critical thinking, research, communication and collaboration skills needed to be successful at school and university as well as in their future careers.
Cambridge Global Perspectives is made up of Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International AS and A Level. It’s also a core part of the revised Cambridge AICE Diploma and from 2017 it will be a compulsory part. Each programme is designed to inspire learners to be curious, independent thinkers, ready to engage positively with the rapidly changing world around them.
Find out about Cambridge Primary and Secondary 1 Global Perspectives for 5 to 14 year olds that we will intoduce later this year.
The cross-curricular syllabus of Cambridge IGCSE Global Perspectives develops learners’ ability to think critically, to research and to analyse different points of view whilst communicating ideas clearly.
