International Baccalaureate Career Related Programme at UDGAM School for Children
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 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.
Udgam School For Children Is Now An IB School offering the World’s Best Programme for Grade 11 & 12 International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme.
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:
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.
The school aims to deliver the highest standards of professional education in new-age career fields. We are committed to educating students to be thoughtful, imaginative, socially responsible individuals, ready to live, adapt, and lead in an increasingly competitive world.
At UDGAM School for Children, we value education that goes beyond academic development. 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.
