This competency refers predominantly to health, safety, mobility, transport and not to forget human relationships. ICIMs main aim will be to support individuals/students to act in an responsible behaviour, manage daily lives, routines, personal finances and consumption. The idea is for each individual to understand their influence on their own and other people's lives.
As we witness multilevel changes locally and globally and unpredictable future demands of work and people’s lives - need for ICIM is now widely accepted and recognized to create the need for a new kind of individual/student whose competence is not only academics but beyond academics. Too. ICIM is essential in today’s and tomorrow’s society.
CCE Finland schools have wholeheartedly participated in this mega drive of ICIM "Independent Country - Independent Me'' -commemorating 75 years of independence. This project engages all grades from K-11 and focuses on various aspects of every student/individual's independence and managing self.
This thought continues from a project to a movement. Teachers/parents across the spectrum are designing/encouraging a series of tasks upon which the students will be encouraged to be independent on the following parameters irrespective of age:
Personal grooming and hygiene
Managing household chores/personal responsibilities
