Our partnership model
Schools and universities around the world partner with News Decoder, typically through annual, recurring partnerships. Our academic partners leverage News Decoder’s editorial team and exclusive online educational resources to help students develop core global citizenship competencies.
News Decoder partners with schools and universities of diverse means and missions. We are particularly well-placed to partner with:
- schools that have an international outlook or commitment to global citizenship
- schools with robust global studies programs or standalone global studies departments
- schools that run an IB Diploma Programme
- schools that have a Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) component to their curriculum
- schools that offer journalism or media classes, clubs or programs
- schools with a strong commitment to co-curriculars or extra-curriculars
- schools open to innovative educational methods
- schools looking to develop any of the above
The academic partners enrolled in News Decoder’s program are members of the not-for-profit Nouvelles-Découvertes and are eligible to participate in its annual general meeting. As such, they play a critical role in shaping News Decoder’s strategy and future.
