OECD / PISA Global Competence frameworkDefinition

"Global competence is the capacity to examine local, global and intercultural issues, to understand and appreciate the perspectives and world views of others, to engage in open, appropriate and effective interactions with people from different cultures, and to act for collective well-being and sustainable development." (OECD, 2018)

NOTE: The OECD PISA global competence framework ties back directly to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals [SDG]. The SDGs are also supported by the Australian Government.

"Schools play a crucial role in helping young people to develop global competence by:

  • providing opportunities to learn about global developments;
  • teaching students how they can develop a fact-based and critical worldview of today;
  • equipping students with the means to analyse a broad range of cultural practices and meanings;
  • engaging students in experiences that facilitate intercultural relations;
  • promoting the value of diversity" (OECD, 2018)
