The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is committed to supporting the development of educators in every IB World School.
As part of this commitment, schools can request to have professional development delivered on their own premises.
Benefits of in-school workshops
In-school workshops provide schools with the opportunity to train their entire IB programme staff on their own school premises, and to focus upon select programme issues and strategies.
All in-school workshops are recognized for school authorization and evaluation purposes.
While they are useful in addressing particular school needs, it is understood that they form only a part of the school’s broader IB professional development portfolio, including participation in regional workshops, online workshops and conferences.
Booking in-school workshops
Depending on where you are in the world, you will need different supporting information when making a request, and the deadline for making a request will be different.
For further guidance, please refer to the tab with information for your region.
In Africa, Europe, Middle East we offer cluster events to train on request educators, on a specific IB programme, at a host school’s premises. Cluster events can help bridge AEM region’s PD offering with specific school needs.
A host school with participating schools (min. 2 schools required), can engage in a partnership with the IB in delivering cluster workshops.
