This workshop is designed to help educational leaders in an IB World School reflect on and improve the quality of Diploma Programme (DP) delivery within their school.
The workshop will focus on:
+ reviewing the impact that the DP has had within the school and wider community
+ developing strategies to address the challenges facing leadership teams within IB World Schools
+ assessing the links between IB Programme standards and practices (January 2014) and effective school practices, structures and policies
+ supporting the needs of the school community by widening access to the DP; for example, introduction of IB Career-related Programme (CP) or DP online courses
+ learning about forthcoming changes and updates that affect the implementation of the DP
+ understanding the evaluation process and its impact on the school.
