Post-16 career-related study options with Pearson

The IB is collaborating with education provider, Pearson, to offer a post-16 career focused study programme that incorporates Pearson’s BTEC qualifications into the IB’s Career-related Programme (CP).

The collaboration means that CP schools will have access to the whole suite of BTEC qualifications – extending the number of subjects that has previously been on offer.

The combination of the CP curriculum and BTEC qualification provides students with both an academic and technical education. A CP package for students wishing to enter the engineering world, for instance, might include a BTEC Extended Diploma in engineering (double), IB Diploma Programme (DP) business and management, mathematics and chemistry courses, as well as the ‘CP core’.

If you are an educator and would like to find out more about the package, or a professional body or education provider interested in partnering with the IB for the CP, please get in touch.
