The IB continuum of international education, for students aged 3 to 19, is unique because of its academic and personal rigour. IB programmes challenge students to excel not only in their studies but also in their personal growth. The IB aims to inspire a quest for learning throughout life that is marked by enthusiasm and empathy. The IB aspires to help schools develop well-rounded students, who respond to challenges with optimism and an open mind, are confident in their own identities, make ethical decisions, join with others in celebrating their common humanity, and are prepared to apply what they learn in real-world, complex and unpredictable situations.
Focuses on learners- IB programmes are student-centred and promote healthy relationships, ethical responsibility and personal challenge.
Develops effective approaches to teaching and learning- IB programmes are taught by teachers who help students to learn how to develop the attitudes and skills they need for both academic and personal success.
Works within global contexts- IB programmes increase understanding of languages and cultures and explore globally significant ideas and issues.
Explores significant content- IB programmes offer a curriculum that is broad and balanced, conceptual and connected.
At the heart of all IB programmes is the IB learner profile. IB learners strive to be inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective. These attributes represent a broad range of human capacities and responsibilities that go beyond intellectual development and academic success.
The IB Career-related Programme (CP) is designed for students interested in pursuing a career-related education in the final two years of secondary school. It provides them with an excellent foundation to support their further studies, as well as ensure their preparedness for success in the workforce.
The CP core components— Students develop personal qualities and professional skills, as well as intellectual habits required for lifelong learning. The CP core components give context to the DP courses and the career-related study and draw all aspects of the framework together.
The personal and professional skills course aims to develop responsibility, practical problem-solving, good intellectual habits ethical understanding, perseverance, resilience, an appreciation of identity and perspective and an understandingof the complexity of the modern world. Emphasis is placed on the development of skills needed to successfully navigate higher education, the workplace and society.
Service learning is the practical application of knowledge and skills toward meeting an identified community need. Through service, students develop and apply personal and social skills in real-life situations involving decision-making, problem-solving, initiative, responsibility and accountability for their actions.
Language development ensures that all CP students have access to and exposure to a second language. The opportunity to learn a second language is a central tenet of an IB education and increases students' understanding of the wider world. Students are encouraged to begin or extend the study of an additional language that suits their needs, backgrounds and contexts. It develops students' oral, visual and written linguistic and communicative abilities
The reflective project is an in-depth body of work produced over an extended period and submitted toward the end of the programme. Through the reflective project, students identity, analyse, discuss and evaluate an ethical dilemma associated with an issue from their career-related studies. This work encourages students to engage in personal inquiry, intellectual discovery, creativity, action and reflection, and to develop strong thinking, research and communications skill.
The Career-related studies— Students are provided with practical, real-world approaches to learning designed to prepare them for higher education, an internship or apprenticeship, or a position in a designated field of interest.
The career-related studies are aligned with student needs and progress toward further study or direct employment.

The IB Career-Related Programme is one of the most prestigious pre university courses in the world. It has been designed to achieve academic proficiency, civic responsibility and international understanding.
Career-Related programme students undertake a minimum of two IB Diploma Programme (DP) courses, a core consisting of four components and a career-related study.
For CP students, DP courses provide the theoretical underpinning and academic rigour of the programme; the career-related study further supports the programme's academic strength and provides practical, real-world approaches to learning; and the CP core helps them to develop skills and competencies required for lifelong learning.
The CP was specifically developed for students who wish to engage in career-related learning while gaining transferable and lifelong skills in applied knowledge, critical thinking, communication, and cross-cultural engagement.

The aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
At IB Level, all IB students experience their lessons and course contact with the Approaches to learning in mind. The approaches to Learning are skills that are strategically designed by the IB in order to assist the students to become better learners.
The Approaches to Learning consist of 5 key areas which are broken down into smaller clusters; Self Management skills, Social skills, Communication skills, Research skills and Thinking skills.
Ultimately the Approaches to Learning provide a common language for the students and teachers and these 5 key areas are taught to students both explicitly and implicitly in order for them to develop in these 5 key areas. Developing their behaviours and skills in alignment with the five key areas above allows the students to have greater to be at the center of their own learning experiences.
Throughout the day-to-day teaching of IB, students will attend their lessons, learn new course content and experience a wider range of learning activities that develop each of the five skills/key areas. Staff at DPS Electronic City School, strategically design lessons with the approaches to learning in mind so that every opportunity is taken to develop students in these five key areas, in turn also allows them to transfer these skills throughout their curriculum subjects and ultimately enable them to achieve better outcomes both at IB level and at University and beyond.
