  • Our workshops

Category 2

Category 2 workshops are intended to provide professional development opportunities for those who have had significant experience of teaching of the subject as part of the IB Diploma. It is possible that those attending category 2 workshops are experienced teachers of the subject but are working in an IB world school perhaps teaching another subject. Such teachers will need to have knowledge of the IBDP programme, its structure and philosophy.

Category 2 workshops are thus likely to be attended by teachers who are:

  • working or have worked in an IB World school
  • experienced in teaching their subject as part of the Diploma
  • experienced in teaching a different subject as part of the Diploma
  • familiar with the current subject guide
  • willing and able to contribute ideas and opinions to the workshop
