IB Career Related Programme at Westminster Academy
The International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP) was developed to provide a balanced course which offers students both an academic and vocational foundation to support their further studies and ensure they are well-prepared to meet the challenges of working in the 21st Century.
Students study two IB Certificates, one BTEC Extended Diploma and must also complete the IBCP Core. The result is a student who is ready to succeed at university (their qualifications add up to the equivalent of 5 A Levels), but with the flexibility and enterprise skills to ensure they are successful in their careers well beyond university.
