Heads of School/IB coordinators: Implementing the MYP curriculum – MYP – Category 1

October 11 @ 1:00 pm - October 13 @ 12:45 pm


Recommended for:

Administrators, heads of school and IB coordinators. Heads of school and Middle Years Programme (MYP) coordinators from candidate schools and schools interested in implementing the MYP should enrol in this category 1 workshop.


You will explore the philosophical, pedagogical and administrative implications of the IB programme to help as you prepare for the verification visit. This workshop encourages you to:

  • develop a leadership approach around collaboration and collegiality
  • transform teaching, learning and assessment practices through a concept-based curriculum that ignites inquiry, action and reflection in global contexts
  • motivate your school community to innovate and take risks
  • align the school’s educational beliefs and values to reflect those of the IB in order to implement a challenging programme of international education.


Category 1

Choose category 1 workshops if you are new to the IB or if your situation is similar to any of the following:

  • You are new to the faculty of a longstanding IB World School and have not taught in an IB programme previously.
  • You are aware of the IB philosophy and programme structure but are not experienced in teaching or administering the IB.
  • You are familiar with the IB subject guide (including assessment procedures, moderation) and would like greater confidence before teaching a course.
  • You have inherited a course and would like a review before teaching it to suit your own style and expertise.
