OCENET awarded Ontario Ministry of Education grants to support international education initiatives

   

In 2015 the Ontario Ministry of Education released Ontario`s Strategy for K-12 International Education. This important document is a comprehensive overview that defines what international education encompasses, provides a rationale for Ontario being involved in international education and outlines four main goals of fulfilling this strategy:

  1. Future-oriented learning for Ontario students;
  2. High-quality programs and services for K-12 international students studying in Ontario;
  3. Opportunities for sharing and developing Ontario education expertise;
  4. Pathways to post-secondary education, work, and living in Ontario.

Last year OCENET received two grants to develop two separate projects which align with the MOE international education strategy goals. These projects were entitled “Developing Intercultural Competencies amongst Staff in Schools Hosting International Students” and “OCDSB International Student Exit Survey”. Reports were prepared and submitted to the MOE and the results of the projects will be shared with other school boards across the province. An overview of the nature and results of these projects will appear in a future edition of Global Connections.

This year OCENET was awarded a grant from the Ontario MOE on “Best Practices for Developing Global Competencies through Sustainable Partnership Schools Abroad, Grades 7-12.” This project not only supports the MOE goals, but also reinforces the Exit Outcomes stated in the OCDSB Strategic Plan 2015-2019.
