What is the IBCP?
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Career-related Programme (CP) is a framework of international education that incorporates the vision and educational principles of the IB into a unique programme specifically developed for students who wish to engage in career-related learning.
The CP’s flexible educational framework allows schools to meet the needs, backgrounds and contexts of students. CP students engage with a rigorous study programme that genuinely interests them while gaining transferable and lifelong skills.
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Career-related Programme (CP) is designed for students aged 16-19.
The programme leads to further/higher education, apprenticeships or employment.
St Simon Stock Catholic School became an IB World School on 29 May 2019.
This allows us to gain access to:
- high quality programmes of education, which support development of knowledgeable and inquiring students
- professional development that supports effective educators and collaborative professional learning communities
- a worldwide network of highly respected IB World Schools, working together to share best practice.
IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.**
**The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
