Summary

This session provides essential updates on the latest developments in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB), focusing primarily on the IB subject courses undergoing a planned cycle of review. Proposed changes to courses in language acquisition (first teaching September 2018), English A, and mathematics (first teaching September 2019) will be examined. Particular consideration will be given to how the new language courses support recognition of English language proficiency, and how new mathematics courses prepare students for specific university subjects. The presentation will also include an update on the progress of the IB Career-related Programme.

Objectives of session:

  • to alert admissions and recruitment managers of significant developments in the IB curriculum
  • to engage admissions and recruitment managers in the process of IB course review
