Global Competence Assessment and Training
We support diverse groups and organisations for whom intercultural communication is a vital skill to the success of their performance and organisational success. The Value Learning team is experienced in helping organisations by identifying training needs, analysing and designing best interventions, and evaluating results.
We are certified administrators of the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI), the Global Competence Inventory (GCI), Inclusive Behaviours Inventory (IBI) and GlobeSmart. In addition, we have extensive experience using the Intercultural Effectiveness Scale (IES) and Intercultural Conflict Styles (ICS) for mobility programs, virtual exchange, global competence programs and organisational change programs. We are qualified trainers for the Global Competence Certificate, and our team can help individuals, teams or organisations assess and develop their intercultural competence. Our courses can be adjusted to align with your needs and offer a transformational experience for teams to work together to enhance their global skills in an interactive and meaningful way.
Assess intercultural and global competence
We use the IES & GCI to help us assist students and organisations understand their intercultural awareness and enhance their skills.

We are qualified administrators of the The Intercultural Development Inventory® - the premier cross-cultural assessment of intercultural competence that is used by thousands of individuals and organizations to build intercultural competence to achieve international and domestic diversity and inclusion goals and outcomes
IDI - Intercultural Development Inventory
IES -The Intercultural Effectiveness Scale
The IES provides an assessment of the degree to which students possess competencies that are critical to interacting effectively with people from other cultural backgrounds. These include intercultural self awareness, continuous learning and resilience. This is an effective tool that we utilise in our work across a range of organisations.
GCI -The Global Competence Inventory
The GCI (Global Competencies Inventory) looks at 16 different dimensions of global leadership and understanding of diversity. It is an effective assessment for trainers, consultants, coaches, and educators who want to expand their global competencies to work more effectively with those around them.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
It is becoming increasingly evident that the work we are doing at Value Learning to increase intercultural understanding and grow global competence can positively impact on the acute need that exists in our societies to improve inclusion in our schools, workplaces and communities. Across the globe there is growing awareness of the importance of diversity in the workplace to improve creativity, innovation, and successful business outcomes. Diversity comes in many forms, it can be related to gender, cultural background, religion, sexual orientation, education, or many other factors. But diversity alone is not enough.
Inclusion results when individuals are heard, they are valued by others, and they have a sense of connection and belonging. Inclusion allows diverse members of groups to contribute in a meaningful and valuable way. Fuelled by the inequities we see in society, and recognising the need, we have been driven to further explore the field of Diversity Equity and Inclusion through extensive study, research and observation. We are equipped and ready to help.
We offer consultation, training, assessment and coaching to support organisations to improve inclusion and belonging and in doing so benefit from their diverse teams, businesses, schools and communities.
Inclusive Behaviours Inventory
The Inclusive Behaviours Inventory (IBI) is a self assessment that helps individuals understand their own strengths and areas for improvement in building a more inclusive workplace. The IBI provides you with a baseline, showing where you rank across five dimensions of inclusion with the Inclusive Behaviors Model℠. Using this framework provides five clear ways to help you learn and grow. The IBI has undergone rigorous psychometric analysis, including reliability, validity, and ongoing testing.
