At Borders College we empower you to understand and develop your skillset to help grow your future. While these are not exhaustive, it is important that our future workforce is aware of the difference they can make to themselves and society.

Education for global citizenship is not an additional subject - it's a framework for learning, reaching beyond College to the wider community. It can be promoted in class through the existing curriculum or through new initiatives and activities. Global citizenship is all about encouraging young people to develop the knowledge, skills and values they need to engage with the world. And it's about the belief that we can all make a difference.

OXFAM – a global citizen is someone who is aware of and understands the wider world - and their place in it. They take an active role in their community, and work and with others to make our planet more equal, fair and sustainable
