WHAT IS THE IB ?

The IB supports schools and teachers to provide a rigorous, high-quality education, offering professional development that improves pedagogy and leadership. 

Certificate 1: IB Certificate in Leadership Practice

This certificate is for aspiring and practicing leaders looking to apply, implement, and sustain IB programmes in IB World Schools.

There are two program pathways leading to qualification for this certificate: an online, two-year master's route and a six month, online certificate-only route.

Certificate 2: IB Certificate in Teaching and Learning

This certificate is for teacher candidates, new or established teachers looking to teach in an IB World School and become reflective practitioners and teacher researchers.

There is one program pathway leading to qualification for this certificate: a one-year, online certificate-only route with an international practicum or equivalent component. For the most capable students, the extended practicum may lead to employment in an IB World School.
