Request a face-to-face workshop

Last updated:

The IB delivers face-to-face workshops for a single school or group of schools, upon request. They take place within the school’s premises or another suitable venue indicated by the school.

Our requested face-to-face workshops are rich learning experiences delivered at your own school, or your preferred venue outside your school premises. 

To request a face-to-face workshop, a minimum of seven participants are required.  The IB also delivers face-to-face workshops to educators across multiple schools in the same area.

Face-to-face (F2F) workshops are most suitable for schools wishing to deliver professional development exclusively to a group of their own teachers – allowing them to explore and learn with educators from a similar context.  

Given the current pandemic, schools must ensure their premises do not face any access or security issues that may prevent the IB from delivering workshops at your school.
