Are you an experienced MYP educator?

Are you a motivated educator with five years’ experience of the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP)? We are looking for applicants to join a free, four-week, online training programme that will enable you to provide curriculum development support to MYP schools that are taking part in Building Quality Curriculum (BQC). BQC is a new service offered to MYP schools, designed to develop their curriculum planning and writing, and also help them prepare for programme evaluation.

Do you know an IB teacher who would like to get involved in Building Quality Curriculum? Would you like to apply for the role of BQC Reviewer? We need reviewers!

A new online training workshop will be offered in May 2017 for educators who meet the criteria and wish to become BQC reviewers. Find all the details and the application form to submit to be considered at

Please share this training opportunity with your friends and associates.

We still need educators with the following areas of expertise:

  • Language and literature
  • Language Acquisition
  • Individuals and Societies
  • Physical and Health Education
  • Math
  • Sciences
  • Arts

    Is there a training program for Chinese teachers?

  • Kate Taverner

    Hi Tony, as Building Quality Curriculum is a new offering, we launched it in the three official languages of the IB: English, French and Spanish to test demand and success. This means that educator training is offered only in English at the moment and educators who have bilingual fluency in English and French, or English and Spanish are encouraged to apply. However, we’re delighted that the service has been well received since its launch in January 2016 and, while we don’t currently have a plan or timeline for adding additional languages, we expect the offering to expand in coming years, so please watch this space. Thanks, K

    I have applied to become a BCQ member, but I’ve been told I can’t
    because I’m an IB examiner. However, I’m not an MYP examiner; I examine
    Language B in the DP.

    I’ve been told that if I want to be considered for the BCQ
    training I have to be removed from the examiner list. The problem is that I don’t want to be
    removed from the examiner list and then not be considered for the BCQ training
    and end up having nothing. What would you suggest? Is there a telephone/email I
    could contact to discuss this or could you give me an answer for this?

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Antonio, thanks for your interest in the BQC role. I’ve checked this with my colleagues and can confirm that the information you have been given is correct and no examiners for any IB programme will be considered for BQC training. Our team designed this rule to ensure that BQC examiners would be clear and free from their examiner responsibilities to be able to work right away, without conflicting interests or time constraints. I’m sorry that this means you cannot fulfil the role on this occasion. Perhaps if your examiner responsibilities change in the coming years, you will be able to reapply for the BQC role. Thanks, Kate
