Leading the Learning – CP – Category 1: Virtual

February 12 @ 9:00 am - February 14 @ 4:00 pm

Recommended for:

This workshop is recommended for coordinators who are:

  • currently involved in a feasibility study or the authorization process to implement the Career-related Programme (CP)
  • new to the IB and about to join an IB World School or candidate CP school
  • new or recently appointed CP coordinators from IB World Schools.

This workshop introduces CP coordinators to the IB philosophy, the role of coordinator and the components of the CP. You will develop an understanding of the IB mission and philosophy reflected in the CP as a programme of international education. You will explore the CP standards, practices and requirements, and the process involved in the application for candidacy, authorization and programme evaluation. You will have the opportunity to discuss the CP Core guide and the CP Assessment procedures that explains the programme’s flexible framework, with its scope for varied implementation in different school contexts, and explore different strategies for implementing the required components of the CP to suit the needs, backgrounds and contexts of students. Finally, you will learn about how to use key IB publications and online systems such as the International Baccalaureate Information System (IBIS) and the programme resource centre that are crucial to the role of the CP coordinator.
