Primary Years Programme (PYP) webinar

Join us for this webinar to learn about the Primary Years Programme and how it strengthens learning and international mindedness throughout the entire school community.

The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) is designed for students aged 3 to 12. It focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It is a framework guided by six transdisciplinary themes of global significance, explored using knowledge and skills derived from six subject areas, as well as transdisciplinary skills, with a powerful emphasis on inquiry.

PYP fosters:

  1. Students: they learn how to think for themselves and take responsibility for their own learning through an inquiry-led approach
  2. Teachers: PYP practitioners are among the most passionate and dedicated educators in the world
  3. School community: parents and the wider school community are also considered learners and valued as essential partners in students’ learning

What does the webinar cover?

  • What an IB Education is
  • Introduction to the PYP and how it works
  • How the PYP supports students to become active, lifelong learners
  • Examples of success stories 

Check out this webinar recording and learn about the benefits and impact the programme has had on students.

“We have seen great changes in our students throughout the five years that we have been implementing the PYP in our school. For example, students have become more independent learners, taking initiative to inquire and learn using the different resources that are available.”
