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.
A BROAD, BALANCED, CONCEPTUAL, AND CONNECTED CURRICULUM
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.
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.

It is a compulsory element and consists of four components: Personal and Professional Skills, Service Learning,Language Development and a Reflective Project. These components are all blended together to develop critical thinking and intercultural understanding, and are at the heart of why IBCP students excel in job and university applications.
The Reflective Project is an in-depth and independent study. Students identify, analyse, discuss an ethical dilemma associated with an issue from their career- related studies. It enables students to develop the research and writing skills required not only at universities, but also in their careers.
