ABOUT THIS OPPORTUNITY
DofE Skills Section Course: Global Citizenship
We’re all connected! Through technology and modern travel, we are living in what seems like an ever smaller world and we are all interconnected as never before.
A global citizen takes responsibility for their actions and beliefs and is aware of the world and develops a sense of their role in it.
Take your part in the community from a local to global level and practice your part in valuing diversity and helping others.
In this U:Bee 12 week online course you can learn skills necessary to become a truly global citizen, such as problem solving, decision making, critical thinking, communication and collaboration.
At the end of your course you will receive your U:Bee Completion Certificate and Assessor’s Report.
This course is ideal with anyone with an interest in the development of our global community.
