Fall IB: Counseling, Category 1

Category 1 workshops are designed to provide training and assistance for schools that have decided to apply for IB authorization. They are equally relevant for educators who are new to a school with an existing IB programme and those interested in joining an IB World School.

The overall purpose of the workshop is to explore the philosophical and administrative principles of the IB Diploma programme counseling for DP implementation. The focus will be on understanding IB philosophy, IB terms/ acronyms, core components and the value of IB for student educational preparation and post-secondary success. The goal of the workshop will be to provide counselors with the knowledge and foundation to understand the facets and evolution of the DP, which DP counselors will utilize to assimilate into their role. The outcomes of the workshop will be: to fully support students, communicate the programme to relevant stakeholders and identify strategies to support the implementation and/or evolution of the DP within a range of school systems and contexts. As a category 1 workshop, the emphasis is on effectively implementing the Diploma Programme, and not on the details of university admissions in varying contexts.
