We offer over a dozen global competence micro-credentials, which allow educators to demonstrate mastery of a range of skills to promote global competence within the K-12 learner experience. Check out what we offer!


Global Competence Certificate

World Savvy offers a range of online coursework throughout the year for K-12 educators and practitioners. We also work through university partnerships to offer the Global Competence Certificate (GCC) — the premier Masters-level certificate program for in-service educators to build a globally competent teaching practice.


World Savvy is currently seeking higher education partners to deliver the GCC. Please contact Mallory Tuominen at mallory@worldsavvy.org if you’re interested.
