Starting in the 2016 Fiscal Year, MEXT will provide free places in IB workshops for participants who meet certain eligibility criteria*

  • Public Officials working for Boards of Education, with approval from their organization.
  • Teachers from a domestic educational facility which can either be a school provided for in the School Education Act of Japan or a private school accredited by WASC, CIS or ACSI. Teachers must have the approval of their Head of School.
  • The school can be an IB, Candidate, Interested or Authorised School, or just interested in finding out more about the IB.

* Priority will be given to applicants who have not previously attended a Category 1 workshop, and priority will also be given to applicants from non-authorized schools and from Boards of Education. To ensure this service is available to as many schools/organizations as possible, we may choose to limit the number of applicants from any one school/organization depending on the number of requests and the places available.
