UWCSEA Mission Competencies

When students run a peace conference, set up their own edible gardening project or take up 'Coding for Good' these are all demonstrations of what we call ‘mission competencies’ in practice. Mission competencies are knowledge, skills, understanding and dispositions from our learning programme in action. They emerge when students, and our alumni, mobilize their learning in complex, real-world situations in service to the mission. 

Described below are the five competencies that the leadership team, through an ongoing review of the UWCSEA Learning Programme, have currently identified as reflecting both the breadth of our holistic learning programme and the ways that students and alumni can be seen to be enacting the mission. 

In 2020/2021, we will review these competencies with the broader community so as to refine them before embedding them into our guiding statements.
