Shaping the future
Cultural Competency Student Workshops
If you would like to find out more about student workshops or the Cultural Competency Kickstarter, please get in touch at email@example.com or follow the King's Internationalisation page on Instagram.
From February to March 2021, we brought together students from across the university to help shape the future of cultural competency at King’s. Through a series of four workshops, participating students have actively helped co-create the exciting new Cultural Competency Kickstarter, an extra-curricular module which is available to all King's students.
Find out more and enrol in the Cultural Competency Kickstarter on KEATS (King's log in required).
Student participation also contributed to the creation of a Level 5 module called Cultural Competency: Professionalism and Practice.
This innovation module is offered to all year 2 undergraduate students at King's. What is cultural competency? Why is it important in my studies, and how can I put it into practice? This multi-and-cross-disciplinary level 5 module will provide students from across the College with the tools with which to answer these key questions. It aims to develop students' critical awareness of the core issues surrounding cultural competency, such as power, equality, positionality, intersectionality and social justice and offer them the conceptual and practical 'know-how', with which to implement this awareness in their academic, professional, and everyday lives, and through this to effect positive change. The module will equip students with skills that are essential for all professionals, and will enable them to be effective global citizens.

Applications are now open for Cultural Competency Staff Co-Creation Workshops in October and November 2022.
Join these interactive workshops to actively help develop a Cultural Competency module for staff from across the university. Participating staff will have the chance to learn more about cultural competency, reflect on your own experiences and explore connected issues.
All members of staff are welcome to apply.
Deadline to apply: Monday 26 September, 17:00
