Curriculum at Skals Efterskole
10 C, IGCSE
The curriculum of the Cambridge classes is built upon Cambridge Assessment International Education and The Danish National Curriculum
All subject (i.e. English, Maths, Physics, 2nd Foreign Language, Economics, and Global Perspectives) are taught within the framework of International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE). Only Danish is taught on the basis of Danish national Curriculum. As an example, if a student graduated with straight A's and B's they could apply to IB and A-level, and the IGCSE would be equivalent to a Pre-IB.
Students from our IGCSE classes are able to choose between the journeys offered that specific term (2021/2022 we offer students a trip to Vietnam, Israel, Nepal, Cambridge/England or Ireland).
10 SIP, Skals International Project-Class
SIP follows its own curriculum and is considered as a transition year, as the students take no National Examination. We have tried to create a class that will suit the future educational system and approach to organizing projects in companies.
SIP could be something for you, if you are interested in improving your skills in working on projects alongside other students, and you should see yourself as someone who would like to become a World Citizen.
SIP is only for 10th grade students and could be described as a gap year between 9th grade and A-level.
