13th April 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 15th April 2018 @ 1:00 pm

*PLEASE NOTE – We have no further accommodation available for our April 2018 workshops, please contact ibsca@osc-ib.com if you would like information on alternative accommodation for the workshop . There are still spaces available in this workshop*

Recommended for:

Administrators, heads of school and IB coordinators.

NOTE: The head of school must attend a category 1 workshop before the submission of application for candidacy. The coordinator is encouraged to attend with the head of school but may attend during the candidate phase.


Heads of school and MYP coordinators from candidate schools and schools interested in implementing the MYP should enroll in this category 1 workshop. Participants explore the philosophical, pedagogical and administrative implications of the IB programme to assist them as they prepare for the verification visit. This workshop encourages participants 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 their 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.
