21st century life places complex demands on graduates looking for work – so enabling students to become self-confident, skilled and career-ready learners must be an integral part of their education.
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Career-related Programme (CP) prepares students for the world of work, as well as developing a student’s personal qualities.
By doing so it leads students down a personally chosen pathway towards further/higher education, apprenticeships or work.
Developing students for success in employment
Students in the CP develop skills that are genuinely valued by employers. The programme’s curriculum framework develops:
- linguistic proficiency
- critical thinking skills
- maturity and responsibility
- time management skills
- a strong work ethic
- social and communication skills.
These capabilities are complementary to the accredited skills students gain as a requirement of their career-related studies.
