Wider skills & competences

ReD Global has designed a novel and innovative curricular element compulsory for all students: the Learning Progression Route (LPR) entitled “Effective Communication for a Religiously Diverse World”

Why the LPR?

The LPR Effective Comminication for a Religiously Diverse World contributes to the ReD Global mission to transcend the objectives of the individual curricula at each partner, to be more than the sum of its parts. The LPR aims to: 

  • add elements that promote both horizontal and vertical curricular coherence (i.e., between and across semesters)

  • provide students with specific knowledge, skills and competences that respond to societal, personal, cultural or labour market needs
