21st century life places complex demands on graduates looking for work – so enabling students to become self-confident, skilled and career-ready learners must be an integral part of their education. The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Career-related Programme prepares students for the world of work, as well as developing a student’s personal qualities. By doing so it leads students down a personally chosen pathway towards further/higher education, apprenticeships or work.
DEVELOPING STUDENTS FOR SUCCESS IN EMPLOYMENT
Students in the programme develop skills that are genuinely valued by employers. The programme’s curriculum framework develops:
• linguistic proficiency
• critical thinking skills
• maturity and responsibility
• time management skills
• a strong work ethic
• social and communication skills.
These capabilities are complementary to the accredited skills students gain as a requirement of their career-related studies.
