IB Educator Certificate Programs

IB World Schools often recruit teachers who have prior IB teaching experience, leaving those without IB teaching experience fewer employment opportunities in IB schools. To address this need, Western Education has partnered with the IB to offer the IB certificate in teaching and learning and the IB certificate in leadership practice. These IB educator certificates are a professional certificate that complements your academic qualifications and signals to school heads that you are capable of teaching or leading in an IB World School.

The IB Educator Certificates will help you strengthen your ability to think critically using a global mindset while building a valuable peer network of ambitious leaders while gaining access to employment in 386 IB World Schools in Canada and more than 3,300 IB World Schools worldwide.
