IB educator network

Last updated:

The implementation of our professional development and school services depends on a diverse and active community of educators, who are passionate about our mission to ensure high quality international education with the aim of creating a more peaceful world.

The International Baccalaureate® educator network (IBEN) brings together IB trained educators, who take up these roles—which are crucial to the growth and quality of the IB.

IBEN works within a global quality assurance framework, ensuring consistency in the delivery of our services.
