Course Description

Long heralded as key competences for 21st century learners, the ”Four Cs” (Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication and Cllaboration) are often embraced in theory yet stump educators in practice. Creativity and Critical Thinking represent inseparable attitudes and abilities for innovation which, contrary to popular belief, CAN be learned, taught and implemented in any classroom.

Communication and Collaboration are fundamental life skills that students can draw from in their everyday experiences at school and shape their ability to live, connect with others and work well in their future. The “Four Cs” strengthen our learners’ ability to find their place – professionally, personally, socially - in today’s fast changing world, while fostering other life-enhancing Cs: curiosity, confidence, caring and cooperation.

This course aims to provide teachers with the knowledge, the know-how and the confidence to incorporate these stimulating skills into their curriculum and school environment. In a true learn-by-doing environment, course participants will gain greater knowledge about what these competences entail and not only how to teach them, but first and foremost how to tap into their own ability to create, to think critically, to communicate effectively and to collaborate well with others.


The course was successful as it covered all our needs regarding new techniques and practices that are able to stimulate students' motivation, cooperation, creativity and critical thinking. All participants enjoyed the warm and productive atmospere of the class thanks to our teacher trainer Robert who was very helpful and ready to inspire us with new ideas on how to become more efficient and productive in our classroom. i recomment this course to every teacher, with no doubt.

There were very many ideas that I got from this course and the people in it. But I think that the main takeaway is that activities done “just for fun” might provide the best tools for learning general competences. I have already had the chance to apply some of the acquired knowledge to my work. We did a teambuilding exercise with a group of students and the reflection process seemed to really get them to think about their roles and teamwork skills
--Carolina ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Very useful and great organised courses. I really liked the ideas of creativity, critical thinking and collaboration. These ideas I will use in my work and share with my colleagues. Our head trainer Susan Gagliano was an amazing teacher. I am very thankful for your intresting courses.
