This work is the result of a twelve-year project to define, not only what the competencies should entail, but also how they can be best presented and implemented.

In a globally connected world, the competencies provide us with the personal and interpersonal skills that enable us to develop a sense of who we are, via our questioning that drives our thinking. Learners develop their Identity that enables effective Thinking & Questioning which in turn enables learners to Manage Self and subsequently Collaborate effectively. This matrix of four competencies then has Communication and Cultural Competency woven through them.

Th competencies are supported by the development of two capability sets (1) Building a Language of Learning and the capability to (2) Connect their new learning to their existing learning. 

These capabilities enable learners to take increasing agency over their learning, developing positive relationships that enable them to collaborate more effectively and make sense of our world in the most efficient and effective manner possible. The cultural competency allows learners to apply the competencies in a manner that is culturally appropriate. 

Each of the competencies is mapped conceptually meaning that this resource is context-free and can be used within schools around the world. Each Department/Ministry/school/class/learner can then use contexts that are relevant to their context.

Each competency is introduced via a background paper describing the framework that underpins the conceptual frameworks associated with each competency. The Identity conceptual framework has been selected for this sample.

Concepts are relationships between variables, where those relationships are viewed through a range of 5-10 contexts. Each concept framework involves a sequence of five concepts that sequentially develop the learner’s understanding, over the first ten years of their education experience. 

Each concept framework is broken down into five developmental stages (see the sample for detail). Learners of all ages always begin with ‘starting out’ and then work through the five stages/levels to the level that they are capable of achieving an understanding in.  


This resource includes an MSWord version of the entire resource, a PDF version and and Excel version of the tables that display the five developmental levels for each concept framework.
