In this episode we tackle the newest IB Programme, the Career-related Programme known as the CP.  Chris Baker Raivo from Champlin Park High School describes the CP, detailing the overall framework and focusing on the core aspects of the programme.

He also talks about how the CP is different from the more established IB Diploma Programme and how it serves students in a different but complementary way. You’ll hear that the CP is a better fit for some students looking to better understand their post-high school options.

The CP can also be a better fit for smaller high schools that might have difficulty offering the entire slate of IB Diploma Programme courses. The CP takes advantage of the individual strengths of each community utilizing the flexibility of the programme to fit the needs of their students.

More information about the CP is available on the IBO.org website.
