  • What subjects make up the IBCP? +

    You will chose a career-related subject and some IB diploma subjects that will compliment it, providing you with a well rounded education.
    This combination of subjects will prepare you for university, apprenticeships or employment.

  • What are career-related subjects? +

    Career-related subjects are traditionally called vocational subjects in England, our students study from the BTEC Nationals, Cambridge Technicals and AQA Technical exam boards.

    Maintaining academic study will maintain academic rigour that is important for continuing learning and reflection as well as providing the opportunity to go to university if you want to.

    - Personal and professional skills - This is developed by Dane Court to ensure the development of students study and employability skills.
