Futuraskolan International uses two international teaching programs; the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC). Both have been developed to meet the goals in the international and national curricula. The concepts support 21st Century Skills and Key competencies for lifelong learning and are used all over the world.
International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is a learning focused curriculum, designed to help the children learn to enjoy what they learn.
- Learn the essential knowledge, skills and understanding of a broad range of curriculum subjects
- Engage with their learning so that they remain committed to learning throughout their school careers and their lives
- Develop the personal qualities they need to be good citizens and to respond to the changing contexts of their future lives
- Develop a sense of their own nationality and culture at the same time as developing a profound respect for the nationalities and cultures of others
In Middle School we use the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC). The curriculum provides a balanced education that will equip young people for effective participation in the modern world.
- It responds specifically to the needs of middle school students by providing independence and interdependence in their learning through discrete subject learning and themes.
- The IMYC encourages learning that helps students make connections that are relevant to their own lives.
- It involves active, skills-based learning, promotes self-reflection and encourages students to use the very latest media platforms to present their learning and express their thinking.
Central to both the IPC and the IMYC is the development of students knowledge, skills and understanding.
