What is the Global Citizens' College?
It is a joint initiative between Regent College, Leicester University's Centre for Citizenship Education and other partners nationally.
It promotes and builds on our students' contribution to the wider community and participation in local and global campaigns, as well as forming the core of our work to develop students' understanding of the world they live in, including through international links, exchanges, projects and conferences.
Education for change
Regent's Global Citizens' College is about stretching you beyond your subject studies and helping you to make a real difference. You can take on a personal challenge; the chance to do community or volunteer work locally or internationally.
You will develop leadership, teamwork, research and communication skills through your involvement in college, city-wide, national or international projects.
What would I study on the full Global Citizens'programme?
You will follow a normal A-level programme with an additional Extended Studies subject and the opportunity to achieve Advanced Communication Skills.
The extended project
Regent College pioneered this exciting new qualification that challenges students to achieve something beyond their main qualifications.
The Soapbox programme has attracted a wide range of speakers on a diverse group of subjects and debates.
Students get involved in a wide range of volunteering opportunities both in the community and the college, making a difference, representing others, practising and developing invaluable skills and experiences.
Many students have the opportunity to spend time in a workplace to understand and experience the world of work.
There are a huge amount of enrichment activities at the college - from Girls Football to British Sign Language, from Chess to Kickboxing there's bound to be something for you.
Personal, learning & thinking skills
The Global Citizens' College programme is an excellent way to help you to develop all 6 sets of personal, learning and thinking skills (PLATS) which the government sees as essential to success in learning, life and work.
Alongside the current offer of AS/A2 French (through Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth 1st College) and Dutch, the college is now a registered Asset Language Centre and is launching an expanded language programme.
