Request a workshop for a group of schools

The IB can provide professional development for groups of schools in your area.

Benefits of workshops for groups of schools

Workshops are designed to fit the professional development needs of districts or groups of schools, providing collaborative and networking opportunities for educators as well as saving costs on individual school workshops.

All workshops are recognized for school authorization and evaluation purposes.

Booking a workshop

In the Americas, groups of schools or districts can request on-site workshops for multiple schools in their area. Each cluster/district workshop event must have at least 51 participants. If you do not meet the 51-person minimum for this PD model, please consider in-school workshop PD opportunities.

Applications for cluster/district workshop events will be accepted on a rolling basis. Preference will be given to applications submitted at least five months before the planned start date of the event.  All applications are subject to approval by Professional Development Delivery.

If approved, a cluster/district workshop event includes a consultation call with IB Professional Development experts who will support you through the planning and delivery of the event.

In Africa, Europe, Middle East we offer cluster events to train on request educators, on a specific IB programme, at a host school’s premises. Cluster events can help bridge AEM region’s PD offering with specific school needs.

A host school with participating schools (min. 2 schools required), can engage in a partnership with the IB in delivering cluster workshops.
