Read guidance on the authorization process
The IB's online resource and document library includes guidance on school authorization, as well as sample applications for candidacy.
We recommend reading through these materials, in order to understand more about the authorization process.
Learn about IB professional development
The IB offers a range of professional development for educators, some of which is mandatory as part of the authorization process.
Educators can take part in both face-to-face and online professional development, and schools can even request that events are held on the school premises.
