The Career-related Programme (IBCP)
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Career-related Programme (CP) is a framework of international education that incorporates the vision and educational principles of the IB into a unique programme specifically developed for students who wish to engage in career-related learning.
The CP’s flexible educational framework allows us to meet the needs, backgrounds and contexts of students. CP students engage with a rigorous study programme that genuinely interests them while gaining transferable and lifelong skills.
The CP provides a comprehensive educational framework that combines highly regarded and internationally recognised courses, from the IB Diploma Programme (DP), with a unique CP core and an approved career-related study.
The CP develops students to be:
- Academically strong
- Skilled in a practical field
- Critical and ethical thinkers
- Resilient and determined
- Confident and assured
- Caring and reflective
Preparing for the best universities and the world beyond
The CP helps students to prepare for effective participation in life, fostering attitudes and habits of mind that allow them to become lifelong learners and to get involved in learning that develops their capacity and will to make a positive difference.
The CP builds on prior learning in the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) and incorporates elements of the IB Diploma Programme, which provides the theoretical underpinning and academic rigour of the CP.
The IBCP is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in their chosen career fields. It offers a blend of academic coursework and practical experiences, ensuring that students are well-prepared for the demands of the job market.
IBCP students have the opportunity to explore their career interests in depth. By selecting a career-related pathway, they can gain valuable insights into their chosen field through specialized coursework, internships, and hands-on experiences.
The IB organization is well-respected globally, and an IBCP diploma is recognized by universities, colleges, and employers worldwide. This can open doors to a wide range of educational and career opportunities.
Personal and Professional Skills:
The IBCP places a strong emphasis on developing essential skills such as critical thinking, communication, problem-solving, and time management. These skills are transferable and valuable in any career or academic pursuit.
Many IBCP programs include a service learning component, which encourages students to give back to their communities and develop a sense of social responsibility.
The IBCP is flexible and can be adapted to suit a variety of career interests and goals. Students can choose from different career-related pathways to align with their individual aspirations.
Preparation for Further Education:
While the IBCP is career-focused, it also prepares students for higher education. Many IBCP graduates go on to pursue bachelor's degrees or other advanced education options.
The IBCP maintains high academic standards and rigorous assessment processes, ensuring that students receive a challenging and well-respected education.
