    The International Baccalaureate (IB) program prepares graduates and practising teachers at various stages of their career, to deliver a student-focused progressive curriculum and help facilitate a better educational experience for learners – from primary to secondary years.

    Over the past five years the number of schools offering the International Baccalaureate has grown exponentially worldwide, with almost fifty per cent more institutions adopting the teaching framework. The increased demand for skilled professionals of the IB positions graduates of this program as preferred candidates in the classroom, to bridge gaps in knowledge and guide students to find their own answers.

    Created in Switzerland in 1968 for students in international schools, the IB is now offered in thousands of schools across the world, from China to Sri Lanka. Emphasising creative and critical thinking, IB learners are encouraged to explore and be responsible for their own learning, by asking challenging questions and developing the ability to communicate with people from different countries and cultures. Teachers who enrol in this program will gain new skills in the evaluation and selection of appropriate educational materials, assessment and reporting, and collaborative work practices to support diverse learning needs.

    You will enhance your educational practice by discovering new frameworks and methods for instruction, giving the students you teach the best possible chance to succeed, in academic proficiency and life skills.

    This program offers three specialisations within each course including, the Education (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) (ages 16-18). This programme is centred on a creative and challenging framework that nurtures individual strengths and encourages students to drive their own learning, through inquiry and independence of thought. Teachers who complete either of these specialisations will gain the holistic teaching tools necessary to act as facilitators and mentors to encourage critical thinking. This multidisciplinary program prepares you to be able to challenge students to ask questions and research their answers and shape the global citizens of the future.

    The Education (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) (ages 16-18) is Certified and accredited by the International Baccalaureate Organisation®
