Recommended for:

Teachers of personal and professional skills (PPS) from schools that have taken the decision to apply to offer the Career-related Programme and new or recently appointed teachers of PPS from IB World Schools.


This workshop is designed to provide specific personal and professional skills (PPS) development to educators from either a school that has decided to apply for IB authorization or recently appointed to a school with an existing IB Career related Programme (CP) offer. The workshop will provide an in-depth look at the IB mission and philosophy reflected in the CP as a programme of international education as well as the context of the PPS course in relation to the CP core and CP as a whole. You will come away with different strategies for implementing the required components of PPS to suit the needs, backgrounds and career-related interests of students and have strategies to ensure PPS course planning is pedagogically underpinned, with supporting examples from a range of contexts.
