At Wrotham, we want to offer the IBCP (The International Baccalaureate Career-Related Programme) from 2017, and we are a candidate school, meaning that we are currently being assessed by the IBO (International Baccalaureate Organisation).
The International Baccalaureate Diploma has been a credible and world-renowned alternative to A Level provision for schools around the world for over 40 years ,and its Career-related Programme builds on this success, having been developed to combine the skills that universities and employers want from students. It has been called the ‘gold standard’ for international sixth form education and it is independent of governmental policies.
The IB’s rising popularity in the UK has resulted in a number of national press articles and interest.
