The Fourth Industrial Revolution represents a fundamental change in the way we live, work and relate to one another. It is a new chapter in human development, enabled by extraordinary technology advances commensurate with those of the first, second and third industrial revolutions. These advances are merging the physical, digital and biological worlds in ways that create both huge promise and potential peril. The speed, breadth and depth of this revolution is forcing us to rethink how countries develop, how organisations create value and even what it means to be human. World Economic Forum
At CLSG we believe that every student should prioritise the development of life skills that they will need to thrive beyond school. The Fourth Industrial Revolution means that development of these higher order skills, also called ‘Transformational Competencies’ by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development(OECD), has never been more important.
Our Pioneer Programme offers student the chance to develop these skills in abundance, through student engagement in their choice of opportunity from the programme. Our students use an online platform, Unifrog, to log their progress as they take this journey to develop these skills. We have categorised our offer in terms of the principle skill set we feel can be gained, but in reality, students will be developing more than one of these skills from their participation in any given activity. For example, in sport, teamwork is prevalent throughout, but leadership is also possible if one becomes captain of a team. The tiles below are designed to demonstrate the myriad of pioneering opportunity that is available to students here at CLSG.
