Course Outline:

Increasingly, the virtues of the IB are acknowledged and more students are engaging in the IB programme. The IB curriculum and academic demands can be strenuous for even the most academically able students, and most require additional support, be it pastoral or academic.

This webinar helps practitioners ensure they have the most current knowledge of the expectations of the IB programme on students, pressure points during the programme, and how the IB is seen and understood beyond secondary education worldwide. Armed with this understanding, practitioners will be better able to guide, support and advise students in their care who are undertaking the IB.

Training topics will include:

  • Understanding the IB programme (curriculum overview, key components and assessment methods, pros and cons)
  • Providing effective academic support (study and time management tips, balancing academics and wellbeing, navigating the extended essay, TOK etc, providing constructive feedback)
  • Providing emotional/pastoral support (building resilience, connecting student with resources, recognising stress and anxiety)

Learning outcomes:

  • Gain a comprehensive understanding of the IB programme
  • Acquire practical strategies to help students academically
  • Develop skills and contextual understanding to help students emotionally.
