Head of School – CP – Category 1

October 2 @ 1:00 pm - October 4 @ 12:45 pm

Please Note: IBSCA is working with the IB to explore the possibility of offering our workshops in a virtual format in the event that they cannot be delivered face-to-face due to COVID-19. Please continue to apply for the workshops and we will be in touch once we have confirmation from the IB. 

Recommended for:

Principals, heads, members of senior management teams from schools which have decided to offer the Career-related Programme. New or recently appointed principals, heads, and members of senior management teams from schools offering the Career-related Programme.

This workshop will provide a basic understanding of the Career-related Programme for members of educational leadership teams and discuss how schools can create a sustainable offer with engaged stakeholders. You will explore the philosophical and administrative implications of IB programme standards with reference to the requirements of CP implementation. Particular focus will be given to introducing the IB mission, student-centred philosophy and the learner profile; and explaining the unique CP framework and suitable delivery of its core elements. In addition, you will learn how to tailor the CP to individual contexts and explore the CP standards, practices and requirements and the process involved in application for candidacy, authorization and programme evaluation.
