The Origins of GIoCT
“Rarely do we have a prophet to predict our futures, but sow the right seeds and the harvest will come”
– Frankie Lowe
Then, as a young teacher, my eyes were opened. From this exchange of words, I learned that my future role as an educator would be to encourage my students to think for themselves. It would not be to impose limitations and boundaries on these young impressionable minds. Little did I know then that this discussion would one day form the all-important foundations for GioCT, established in 2018.
Setup as an institute in the UK, and now a registered charity, GIoCT has always stayed true to its roots, our mission remains the same, to nurture creative thinkers, empower those we teach, and inspire futures. We want to make a purposeful contribution with the seeds we plant to bring about meaningful lifelong learning. We do not own nature. We plant and nurture trees and they grow in their own diverse, unique way. How much more so with the minds of the future, each should become a masterpiece.
“Our mind-made walls alone limit our flight, but the curious heart can smell the snow lotus on the
farthest mountain.” – Frankie Lowe
To ignite minds and foster out-of-the-box
thinking in educational settings across the globe, serving as the catalyst for a transformative
approach to learning and leadership.
