The International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme is the IB programme that is designed for students 16 to 19 years of age. It is a unique programme designed to bring the academic rigour and global focus of the IB through career-related courses.
The IBCP provides an opportunity for students to integrate the career-focused courses of their choice with selected IBDP subjects. This flexible framework allows students to integrate academic knowledge and practical, hands-on career skills. This combination of academics and experience empowers candidates to gain 21st-century skills and better adapt to workplace requirements.
CP Goenka International School (Pune) is a candidate school* for the CP. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education - that we believe is important for our students. *Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
“The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.
These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.”
The four key foundational and interrelated elements that are central to all IB programmes:
1. International-mindedness – International-mindedness is a multifaceted concept that captures a way of thinking, being, and acting characterized by an openness to the world and a recognition of our deep interconnectedness to others.
2. The IB learner profile – The IB learner profile places the student at the center of an IB education with the 10 attributes reflecting the holistic nature of the programmes.
3. A broad, balanced, conceptual, and connected curriculum.
4. Approaches to teaching and learning – IB’s six approaches to teaching and five approaches to learning play a crucial role in ensuring that the aspirations of an IB education become a reality in the classroom. The approaches are centered on a cycle of inquiry, action, and reflection—an interplay of asking, doing, and thinking—that informs the daily activities of teachers and learners.
C P Goenka International School provides a conducive environment to help students realize their true potential by nurturing in them skills, such as creative thinking, teamwork, effective communication, problem-solving and being a lifelong learner, which will help them blend in seamlessly into an ever-changing society. To enable our students in realizing that a true global citizen is one who respects diversity of gender and cultural background.
CP Goenka International School works towards developing a sustainable future in a multi-cultural environment ahead. Being one of the Best International Schools in Pune, we are determined to nurture holistic, resilient, empathetic, and lifelong learners who are responsible citizens as well. The similarities between the IB mission and our school mission are privy to the fact that we share a common collaborative educational philosophy with an aspiration of creating a community of learners who achieve and contribute positively to the world.
IBCP helps students-
As part of the CP blueprint, students study at least two Diploma Programme (DP) courses alongside the CP core and a career-related course.
As a CP student, you will learn the theoretical foundations of the programme and gain academic rigor; the career-related course incorporates practical, real-world experiences into the coursework; and the CP core assists with the development of the skills and competencies required for lifelong learning.
In addition to the Career-related studies, students are required to choose related DP subjects at either the standard or higher level in the IB Career-related Programme.
The CP Core is mandatory for all students enrolling in the programme.
Students at C P Goenka International School have the option of choosing career-related programs that fit their aspirations.
By partnering with the World Academy of Career Programmes (WACP), we are able to offer students career-related courses in Business Administration, Events Management & Sports Management.
