    We provide an official certificate of attendance for all participants who sucessfully complete the course. This not only enhances your own CV but also provides evidence of continuing professional development - a requirement for IB World school five year evaluation.
  •   Small groups

    Our workshops are small and informal. Our preferred group size is 12 with an absolute maximum of 15 participants, and we usually run no more than four subjects at any one time.

    This ensures that participants can easily share ideas within their workshop groups as well as enjoying the small scale, informal social events.

  •   Great food

    With the expert college catering team serving our needs - high quality refreshment and meal breaks are integral to our workshop events and are greatly appreciated by all our participants.

    All refreshments, lunches and evening meals are included in the workshop fee of £824.

  •   The International College

    Just a short walk away from the IB college, the International College at Bardwell road provides the perfect venue for our teacher workshops.

    The venue is approximately a three minute walk from the Linton Lodge hotel - where the vast majority of our participants stay.

  •   IBDP - specific resources

    St.Clare's Oxford is England's longest established IB World school.

    The IB teacher workshops thus enjoy access to a number of our IB Diploma focused resources including the library, science laboratories and Visual Arts studio.

  •    Walking tour of Oxford

    All participants are offered a guided walking tour of the fascinating historic Oxford City Centre.

    This lasts about two hours and usually takes place in the late afternoon after workshop sessions on the first day.
