Leading the Learning – PYP – Category 1: Virtual

November 13 @ 9:00 am - November 15 @ 4:00 pm

Recommended for:

Primary Years Programme (PYP) coordinators, school leaders and heads of school.

A PYP leadership team evaluates its actions for improving learning and teaching and the well-being of its learning community. This workshop supports you to create the culture and conditions of a PYP school by considering the choices you make, the actions you take and the impact on student learning. You will examine the needs of the learner, learning and teaching, and your learning community to implement a transdisciplinary concept-based curriculum that has a powerful influence on student learning. Finally, you will reflect on your leadership capabilities in the context of leading an IB World School.


Category 1

Choose Category 1 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 administrating the IB.
  • You are familiar with the IB subject guide (including assessment procedures, moderation) and would like greater confidence before teaching a course.
