IB CAREER-RELATED PROGRAMME

 

 

Fridley High School is a authorized school for the IB Career-related Programme.

The IB Career-related Program (IBCP) is designed for students interested in pursuing a career-related education. 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 enables students to:
  • combine academic subjects with their personal and professional interests and skills.
  • engage in learning that makes a positive difference to their community.
  • think critically and creatively.
  • communicate clearly and effectively in a variety of situations.
  • effectively work independently and in collaboration with others.
  • consider new perspectives and other points of view.
  • develop self-confidence, self-awareness, resilience, flexibility, and agility of mind.
  • be internationally-minded and globally aware.
  • apply their knowledge to real-world scenarios and situations.

 

The IBCP framework is built around three interconnected elements:
  1.  at least two Diploma Programme courses. These courses provide and enhance the academic rigor of the CP.
  2. an IBCP core that includes a personal and professional skills course, service learning, language development and a reflective project
  3. an approved career-related study culminating with an industry standard certificate


Pathway Courses

Reducing the “academic versus vocational” divide

Drawing on its experience and reputation in curriculum and assessment development through international collaboration, the IB can contribute positively to career-related studies by challenging the perception (still prevalent in many parts of the world) that career-related studies is of lesser status than academic studies. The IBCP has been designed to remove the distinction that exists in many educational systems around the world between knowledge skills and practical skills and, in so doing, maximize the effectiveness of young people as they continue their education, enter the workforce and take their place in society.
