Subject-specific seminars (SSS)

Following the publication of new guides for 2023, several SSS are organized for DP subjects. Read curriculum updates and subject briefs here.

The SSS is a professional development event offering comprehensive information and materials for experienced educators in those subject areas to fully familiarize themselves with new changes in the guide. It also offers a unique opportunity for educators to engage with staff and/or members of the curriculum review team.

Note: For educators new to the IB or to the DP, we will offer Category 1 workshops from 28 April 2023 onwards. These Category 1 workshops will also focus on the new guide.

Category 2 workshops will also be available and focus on the new guide.
