Global Schools Program Certificate
Global Schools Program (GSP) is a data-driven and evidence-based international education program that equips teachers with the knowledge, tools, and resources to promote ESD (education for sustainable development) within their schools and classrooms.
In 2021, 17 of our teachers from all of our schools were selected as "Global Schools Program Advocates" among 2000 applications and they were among 36 advocates from Turkey by receiving their certificates as a result of the training they successfully completed. In addition, one of our teachers was selected as a mentor in this program.
Global Schools Advocates promote sustainable development literacy in classrooms and transform pedagogy in school programs in order to support a worldwide education movement for sustainable development and empower educators in school communities. The Global Schools Advocates in our schools promote Global Schools Program in their school communities.
