  • You are aware of the IB philosophy and programme structure but are not experienced in teaching or administering the IB.
  • You are familiar with the IB subject guide (including assessment procedures, moderation) and would like greater confidence before teaching a course.

Choose category 2 workshops to develop your expertise in delivering an IB programme. You will have an opportunity to:
