Course Description

This course provides an overview of international education and the role of the International Baccalaureate (IB) in determining principles, standards and practices for the K-12 continuum.  This course introduces the nature of inquiry, the role of standards and assessment in formulating instruction in IB settings.

  2. Have a recognized teaching qualification or be in the process of completing an education degree.  The IBO does acknowledge that some experienced IB teachers may not hold a current teaching qualification.  In such cases, a minimum of three years full time professional teaching experience in a government-approved/registered school is required. 
NOTE:  Evidence of education or teaching experience in the relevant subject area will be required.  This evidence will vary depending on your level of teaching experience or teacher training, and might include:

  • three or more years teaching experience in the subject area, supported by letter(s) from your employer(s), OR
  • unofficial transcript or copy of degree specifying a major or a minor qualification in the selected specialization (for those entering or enrolled in a teacher training program).
