The Ministry of Education is currently running a Global and Intercultural Skills Pilot (GISP), which promotes and recognizes the development of intercultural skills and competence by British Columbia students. Intercultural skills are becoming increasingly valuable for students’ personal and professional success in an increasingly globalized world.
Join Ministry, K-12 and post-secondary representatives to learn more about GISP, why school districts, independent schools and post-secondary institutions are joining the pilot and how they have gone about implementing GISP in their particular settings.
The Ministry anticipates expansion in Pilot Year 3 (2018-19) with additional K-12 and post-secondary participants. Please join us for this presentation if you are interested in potentially joining the pilot, or if you would just like to learn more about the ways pilot participants and the Ministry of Education are promoting interculturalization.
