The Global Competence Certificate (GCC) is a course built by Sentio - an international, voluntary, non-profit organization that provides intercultural learning opportunities to help people develop the knowledge, skills and understanding needed to create a more just and peaceful world.
Taking the Global Competence Certificate program through GV Victoria includes stimulating English language classes to broaden a student's perspective of the people and cultures of the world, building global competence.
With a qualified facilitator guiding the process toward certification, students maximize both their cultural learning and their English language learning.
