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 Canada and the United States, schools can request on-site workshops for multiple schools within their district. Each district workshop event must have at least 75 participants.

In Latin America, schools can request on-site workshops for multiple schools within the host school’s country.  Each cluster workshop event must have at least 55 participants. 

Workshop descriptions are available in the IB Workshops and Services catalogue

Applications for district and cluster workshops will be accepted on a rolling basis, however, preference will be given to applications submitted at least six months before the planned start date of the event. We are unable to guarantee approval of an application submitted within a six-month window.

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.
