Civic Literacy, Global Awareness and Cross-cultural Skills
Our society is becoming increasingly cosmopolitan and more Singaporeans live and work abroad.

At the same time, we should be informed about national issues, take pride in being Singaporean and contribute actively to the community.
Information and Communication Skills
With the Internet Revolution, information is often literally just a click away.
It is important that we know what questions to ask, how to sieve information and extract that which is relevant and useful.
At the same time, we need to be discerning so that we can shield ourselves from harm, while adopting ethical practices in cyberspace.
Importantly, we should be able to communicate our ideas clearly and effectively.
Critical and Inventive Thinking
To be future-ready,we need to be able to think critically, assess options and make sound decisions.
We should have a desire to learn, explore and be prepared to think out of the box.
We should not be afraid to make mistakes and face challenges that may at first appear daunting.
Developing New Skills and Values
Outer Ring
Knowledge and skills must be underpinned by values.
Values define a person’s character. They shape the beliefs, attitudes and actions of a person, and therefore form the core of the framework of 21st century competencies.

Middle Ring
The middle ring signifies the Social
and Emotional Competencies skills necessary for us to:
recognise and manage our emotions,
develop care and concern for others,
make responsible decisions,
establish positive relationships,
handle challenging situations effectively.

The outer ring of the framework
represents the 21st century skills necessary for the globalised world we live in.
They are:
• Civic literacy, global awareness and
cross-cultural skills
• Critical and inventive thinking
• Information and communication skills

Together, these competencies will enable us to tap into the rich opportunities in the new digital age, while keeping a strong Singapore heartbeat
How do we build and inculcate these social and emotional competencies in us?
The Character and Citizenship Education (CCE) aims to inculcate values and build social and emotional competencies in us.
This in turn is to develop us into good individuals and useful citizens in a fast changing and globalised world.
It develops us through an understanding of the values that define the Singapore society, inspiring us to show concern about the world we live in, and demonstrate empathy in their relationships with others.
How will the CCE do that?
We will learn values through three overarching ideas, namely (Identity, Relationships and Choices) in six domains, starting with self and extending to the family, school, community, nation and the world.
The diagram below shows the Core Values, the 3 Big Ideas and the Expanding Domain in the CCE syllabus:
3 Big Ideas
The Big ideas; Identity, Relationships and Choices, are core concepts of the syllabus.
They are interconnected and impact one another.
We need to know who they are in order to relate positively with others.
Relationships forge and shape our identity and influence the choices we make.
The ability to make good choices impacts on our understanding of our own identity and the relationships we form.
6 Expanding Domains
Being who i am and becoming who i can be.
Strengthening family ties
Fostering healthy friendships and team spirit
Understanding our community and building an inclusive society
Developing a sense of national identity and nation building
Being an active citizen in a globalised world
How are these things inculcated into us?
Questions are crafted to unpack each big idea and to stimulate discussions in
the classroom.
They serve to guide us to think about the habits, values, attitudes, competencies and skills that we should equip themselves with to handle diverse life experiences.
