Global Perspectives


What is Cambridge Global Perspectives?

Cambridge Global Perspectives is a unique, transformational program that helps students at every stage of school education develop outstanding transferable skills, including critical thinking, research and collaboration. 

This innovative and stimulating skills-based program places academic study in a practical, real-world context. It gives students aged 5 to 19 years the opportunity to develop the skills that they need to be successful at school and university as well as in their future careers. 


The program taps into the way today’s students enjoy learning, including group work, seminars, projects and working with other students around the world. The emphasis is on developing students’ ability to think critically about a range of global issues where there is always more than one point of view.


Who is it for?

The program is for students aged 5 to 19 years, leading seamlessly from Cambridge Primary through to Cambridge Advanced. Each stage builds on the learners’ development, whether from a previous Cambridge stage or from another educational system.


Our flexible approach means schools can offer every stage of the Cambridge Global Perspectives program, or just focus on specific stages. Progression through the different stages enables skills to be developed by revisiting and engaging with concepts at deeper levels and in different contexts.


Cambridge Lower Secondary Global Perspectives

Cambridge Lower Secondary Global Perspectives programme is typically for learners aged 11 to 14 years.

This programme leads seamlessly from primary, building on learner development, but can also be offered separately. 


The curriculum ensures continuity in the way the skills of research, analysis, evaluation, reflection, collaboration and communication are developed. It challenges learners to explore and make judgements on the global issues that really matter to them.
