The workshop will focus on:

+ The IB Diploma Programme model and how it holistically links the IB mission and philosophy, approaches to teaching and learning (ATL), and the curriculum (core and subject groups)
+ The implications for the school and its community of implementing the DP, including costs and staffing
+ Strategies to support successful implementation of the DP across a range of school contexts
+ The IB Programme standards and practices and the processes involved in application for candidacy and authorization and in the five-year evaluation.
