How can we prepare students of English to become successful international citizens who can stake their claim in a globalised world? We would like to share the unique and innovative Cambridge Framework for Life Competencies which is set to transform how English is taught – imparting the life skills and outlook that will allow the next generation of global children to engage fully with their world. The Framework for Life Competencies is built on bespoke research carried out by Cambridge in response to the changing needs of educators across the world who are seeking English language programmes that enable students at all stages of their education to think creatively and critically, to use English to communicate effectively and with purpose, and to learn crucial human skills of collaboration and social responsibility as part of learning English.
