Understanding the CP – CP – Category 3

April 5 @ 8:00 am - April 7 @ 5:00 pm


Recommended for:

This workshop is designed for schools that want to broaden their educational offering at post-16 by introducing the IB Career-related Programme (CP). Aimed at interested, candidate and existing IB World Schools, this workshop can be used as an exploration point for interested schools, an information source for candidate schools and as a refresher workshop for existing IB World Schools authorized to run the IBCP. Designed for school heads/administrators and IBCP coordinators or a coordinator’s designate. The workshop provides an opportunity to explore and understand the IBCP and the opportunities and strengths that come from the combination of vocational and academic programmes.


This workshop will introduce you to the IB CP, including the IB philosophy and ethos. You will explore the effective delivery of career-related courses alongside the academic strand of IB Diploma Programme (DP) subjects and the CP core. You will learn what it means to be an IB World School and get a brief overview of the development of the CP and the CP core. In addition, you will explore the role of the CP coordinator, understand how CP subjects are delivered and assessed and obtain strategies to design an effective CP. You will also have the opportunity to discuss the CP authorization process and working with CP Programme standards and practices.
