International Baccalaureate Career Pathway

 

What is the IBCP?

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a world-class, international and highly regarded qualification taken by many successful students in schools across the globe. This year, over 20 schools in Kent are taking part in a project to launch the IBCP (International Baccalaureate Careers Related Programme)

Here at Towers School Sixth Form Centre, we are in the process of applying to be recognised as an IB World School.  We are planning to launch the IBCP in September 2017 with the current Year 11 students as our first cohort. A number of students have already signed up and are excited about the opportunity to study new subjects such as Social Cultural Anthropology, Biology, Chemistry and Psychology.

This course also offer students the opportunity to undertake focussed work experience connected to their career pathway and to undertake a  research project that will prepare them for further study and learning.
