The Conseil scolaire catholique Providence has signed a partnership agreement with two European academies, Académie de Lille and Académie de Lyon.

The new partnerships are part of the Csc Providence’s new International Program, whose aims include developing and implementing highly effective teaching practices. The initial goal is to enable teaching staff to exchange ideas on teaching and assessment methods as well as best practices with their foreign counterparts, and to deepen their knowledge of global issues.

“These professional development opportunities will enable our respective teaching institutions to add an international component to the educational programs and services offered to students,” said Jean-Paul Gagnier, Superintendent of Education.

These courses and learning activities, enriched with a global perspective, will help the students develop international, intercultural or global knowledge, skills and experience. Thanks to a learning environment that exposes them to, and makes them more aware of, international issues, the students will acquire the tools and know-how they need to become responsible citizens of the world, informed and active.

“In an internationalized learning environment, students will be able to build friendships with classmates from a variety of cultural backgrounds, friendships that will last well beyond their years in school. Their interactions will foster inclusiveness and respect for diverse points of view and cultural factors,” according to Joseph Picard, Director of Education.

The components of the new International Program will be rolled out in phases, beginning in February 2016.
