The IBCP incorporates the vision and educational principles of the IB into a stand-out programme specifically developed for students who want greater career-related learning.
The IBCP’s flexible educational framework allows schools to meet the needs, backgrounds and contexts of their own students – each creating its own distinctive version of the IBCP.
Importantly, the IBCP prepares students for an ever-changing world of work – asking them to:
- consider new perspectives and other points of view
- engage in learning that makes a positive difference
- develop a combination of traditional academic skills and practical skills
- think critically and creatively in rapidly-changing and global workplaces
- communicate clearly and effectively
- work independently and in collaboration with others
- become self-confident people who are resilient and flexible.
Specifically designed to empower students who want to specialise in, and focus on, a career-related education, the programme’s three-part framework comprises:
- career-related studies
- the study of at least two Diploma Programme courses
- the distinctive IBCP core which is designed to create a bridge that connects each student’s chosen Diploma Programme courses and career-related studies.
For IBCP students
- Diploma Programme courses provide the theoretical underpinning and academic rigour
- career-related studies further support the programme’s academic strength and provide practical, real-world approaches to learning
- the IBCP core helps them to develop skills and competencies required for lifelong learning.
