Project Details

Global Peace Education’s Character and Creativity Initiative (CCI) seeks to make education more relevant in the twenty-first century by integrating character and creativity into all aspects of school culture towards the development of the whole person. Character and Creativity Standards (CCS) developed in 2015, with a planned pilot in 2016, provide teachers, principals, and ministries of education with a benchmark that shows how schools compare to other schools in preparing students for future success. CCS captures the top 15 leadership competencies employers are seeking from high school and college graduates entering the workforce. 

Following a review of the literature, Five Standards (Purpose, Character, Creativity, Relationships, and Learning) and their associated Competencies were determined to be critical. These Standards and Competencies are sought by employers, and lead to stronger families and communities. The Standards and Competencies broadly align with valid and standardized frameworks that measure organizational culture, for example, in business.
