Workshops in the Asia-Pacific region

The number of educators attending IB Asia-Pacific (IBAP) workshops continues to grow significantly. In 2010, we provided for more than 10,000 teachers. By the end of 2014, this number had grown to approximately 20,000.

We also work with networks throughout the region, and with several partners, to deliver the workshops teachers need at a location close to them. Regional workshops are held throughout the year, in an ever-growing number of locations in the Asia-Pacific region.

In-school workshops

Asia-Pacific hosts approximately 25-30 in-school workshops each month, for schools implementing IB programmes. These workshops are tailored to the needs of school staff and are proven to be a cost-effective way to strengthen the whole school community.

They are delivered on the school premises.

Register for an in-school workshop, using the IB information system (IBIS). Most workshops in the professional development catalogue, linked to below, can be requested as an in-school workshop.
