Counselling – DP – Category 1 – CANCELLED

September 4 @ 1:00 pm - September 6 @ 12:45 pm

Please note: This is the workshop that was postponed from April 2020 due to COVID-19. 

If you registered for this workshop in April 2020 your place had been automatically transferred to the new date in September. If you have not yet registered and would like to attend, please follow the ‘apply’ link’ below.

Recommended for:

Counsellors and career guidance officers.

The overall purpose of the workshop is to explore the philosophical and administrative principles of the Diploma Programme (DP) counselling for DP implementation. The focus will be on understanding IB philosophy, IB terms and acronyms, core components and the value of IB for student educational preparation and post-secondary success. The goal of the workshop will be to provide counsellors with the knowledge and foundation to understand the facets and evolution of the DP, which DP counsellors will utilize to assimilate into their role. The outcomes of the workshop will be: to fully support students, communicate the programme to relevant stakeholders and identify strategies to support the implementation and/or evolution of the DP within a range of school systems and contexts. As a category 1 workshop, the emphasis is on effectively implementing the Diploma Programme, and not on the details of university admissions in varying contexts.
