Global Young Leaders Courses

 

Foundation Global Young Leaders: Introduction to debating and Social Sciences

(age 11 to 13)

Foundation GYL is an introduction to debating and students are introduced to the format used in the World Schools Debating Championships, used by schools across the world. The debating course focuses on developing confident, persuasive speaking skills, and developing the use of formal English.

 

Social sciences lessons form a key part of Foundation GYL, looking at world history; geography; history of science; world religion; sociology and law. This interdisciplinary approach gives students an overview of the world issues, and an increased understanding of them.

Experienced teachers guide small classes through lessons on a range of themes designed to help them become more informed and engaged global citizens.

Global Young Leaders: Debating and Critical Thinking
