The IB Career-related Programme

Ib world school logo 2 colourThe International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP) was developed to combine the values of the IB with a career-related education. 

Students study a minimum of two IBDP courses, one BTEC Extended Diploma and the IBCP Core. They develop the academic strength, international perspective and research skills required for university and life-long learning, along with professional, transferable skills to ensure they are successful in their careers.

WA IBCP students have achieved great success in recent years, securing places on exciting undergraduate courses at universities such as King’s College London, Exeter and Nottingham.
