Face-to-face workshops

Face-to-face (F2F) workshops take place at several events which the IB and our partners organize throughout the world.

Every event generally consists of multiple workshops, hosted at conference venues, hotels and IB World Schools.

F2F workshops are scheduled on a yearly basis, and take place over two to three consecutive days, facilitated in all three IB official languages – English, French, Spanish. 

Who should attend F2F workshops?

F2F workshops are ideal for educators looking to interact and network with colleagues from other IB World Schools and non-IB schools.

IB programme coordinators may also register their school’s teachers to F2F workshops to meet their schools’ authorization or evaluation requirements.

  • It is a comprehensive and intensive learning experience consisting of 15 hours across two-and-a-half days.
  • It covers both regional and global perspectives.
  • It offers a platform to network, share best practices and collaborate with peers from your same region.

Cancellation policy

If you cancel your registration at least 22 days before the first day of the workshop, a full refund of any registration fees paid will be credited to your school account, which can be used toward other IB invoices. Cancellations made 21 days or less prior to the first day of an IB event will incur a penalty of 100% of the registration fee. 

We recognize that many participants must travel to attend IB regional workshops. The IB expects registrants to make every reasonable effort to attend the workshop for which they registered. 

Please be aware that if the workshop is held, no refunds or credits shall be issued for difficulties encountered in transit. Participants are encouraged to purchase a travel insurance plan designed to protect the traveller from losses resulting from sudden and unexpected conditions or events.

The IB reserves the right to cancel a workshop due to low enrolment or unforeseen circumstances. We endeavour to give participants as much advance notice as possible of any change to their enrolment. 

In the unlikely event that the IB must cancel a workshop, we will refund any registration fee paid to your school account, which can be used toward other IB invoices. Credit card payments will be refunded to the same card used at registration.

Please note that the IB does not reimburse participant travel expenses.
