Developing Responsible Global Citizens refers to a shared purpose to develop forward-looking language schools in the 21st Century.

Through our DRGC curriculum and syllabi builder you will be able to design courses for your students with topics, language, and communication skills in order to explore, decide and act on the many challenges we face globally.


The DRGC Framework

The DRGC framework is a detailed collection of specific learning outputs based on important 21st century topics, such as community, health, environment, diversity and innovation.

These learning outputs have been aligned with the “can do” statements from the CEFR, focusing on the four main language skills (reading, listening, writing and speaking). In addition, they are designed to facilitate the acquisition of important 21st century skills, such as critical thinking, communication, digital literacy, etc.

The DRGC Curriculum Builder

The builder is an interactive tool that allows language teachers and academic managers to easily design their syllabus based on the needs and interests of their students. It draws on learning outputs from the DRGC framework and offers suggestions on teaching methodology and academic resources.

Benefits of using the builder:

  • Makes it easier and quicker for teachers to design bespoke courses
  • Allows teachers to focus on topics relevant to their learners
  • Introduces a range of skills and other subjects not normally covered by a language course curriculum
  • Allows students to apply their language skills in meaningful contexts
  • Develops soft skills needed for personal and professional development of students

Teacher-training materials and course

We are also developing a web-based teacher training course to help teacher and academic managers use our outputs and successfully implement them in their schools. This self-study course will guide teachers through the step-by-step process of designing their own DRGC courses.
