Head of school - adding a programme (CP)

IB online professional development is pleased to offer the following workshops.

Intended for Heads of School who have previously completed the current Head of School Category 1 workshops and are now involved in adding a new IB programme, this module provides a brief overview of IB philosophy, but focuses primarily on programme-specific information. The successful completion of this course will fulfill the category 1 PD requirement at Application for Candidacy for additional programmes.  It is self-paced, free, unfacilitated and online.
