The International Baccalaureate® (IB) operates an educator network which provides several ways for educators to become involved in the IB community.

The IB educator network (IBEN) ensures that the IB provides a high-quality experience in classrooms and schools.

Through IBEN, educators can support the IB in a number of roles, becoming workshop leaders, schools visitors and consultant visitors.

Joining IBEN: the benefits

IBEN benefits educators as well as schools.

Educators can improve the quality of their classroom teaching and enhance their competitive advantage in the education sector.

Schools will have the opportunity to comment on IB programme development and have training paid for by the IB.
