Aim: This webinar provides expert insight on the advantages and challenges of delivering International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes alongside a UK-style curriculum. It explores the factors behind many schools’ decision to adopt this approach and offers practical suggestions for following this model in your setting.

Why this webinar’s important: IB programmes are able to supplement and complement existing UK-style curricula: offering skill and knowledge development for both staff and students, while maintaining the familiarity of recognised qualifications in the UK and international settings. For schools wishing to provide such a mix on their syllabus, it is essential to understand the challenges inherent in applying a new curriculum model – but also to appreciate the opportunities this can bring for improving not only student outcomes but the school’s over-arching culture and ethos.
