Frequently Asked Questions

Two groups of teachers "fall between the cracks" of these categories: those with extensive IB teaching experience who find themselves in applicant schools, and those inexperienced in IB teaching who find themselves in schools with longstanding IB affiliation. We hope that those teachers will refer to the goals and objectives of the workshops to choose judiciously.
