OUR VISION

Changemakers
Human Intelligences

Scroll arrow icon

The world is facing major changes: environmental, with our planet at risk; technological, with AI challenging our jobs and the place of humans in the workplace; societal, with rising inequalities and wavering democracies. We are at a crossroads. The world will be changing faster and faster, from the way we connect to the way we engage and the way we work.

In order to tackle such existential challenges, we need to arm the next generation with new skills, new knowledge, and a new mindset, empowering them to shape and in some cases reverse these transitions in a positive way. We need positive leaders able to engage people in a shared purpose across all fields of expertise, across organisations, across cultures and social barriers.

It’s time to look forward and realign the way we teach to what our societies, recruiters, and students expect for tomorrow.

Blending tradition for excellence with innovation for relevance, FORWARD COLLEGE empowers the changemakers we need to shape the world we hope for.

Combining tradition and innovation

To foster a holistic development of Human Intelligences, Forward College builds on the foundations of traditional academic excellence developed by centuries-old academic institutions combined with innovative approaches to teaching and learning.

By tradition of excellence, we refer to:

  • The quality of the academic curriculum designed by top academic institutions (LSE, King’s college London).
  • Forward Faculty members who all display excellent academic accomplishments in intercultural settings and invest 10% of their time in professional development.
  • Small-class teaching and one-on-one tutoring.
  • A culture of pastoral care, inclusion, and mutual support. We believe that exceptional academic performance is facilitated by a supportive teaching culture and a wider spirit of collegiality.

By innovation, we mean developing multiple teaching strategies whose effectiveness has been proven by the latest research in education, development, and neuroscience:

  • Flipped Classroom: where students progressively start learning through guided individual exploration, exchanges in small teams, individual tests, and more formal class discussions where students enhance their understanding of what they have learned. This approach has been proven to significantly enhance learning performance and learning autonomy.
  • Project-based Learning: turning theory into practice and making knowledge operational. This will allow you to develop your initiative and strategic thinking through first-hand experience.
  • Personal Development: benefiting from dedicated coaching sessions and developing techniques for stress management, decision making, complex problem solving, and emotional awareness.
  • Structured Peer Learning: to develop your communication and collaboration skills, team spirit, empathy, and self-confidence.
  • Intensive Intercultural Exposure: broadening your views, developing your personal adaptability, and fostering your ability to engage constructively with cultural differences.
