The Middle Years Programme: complementing the Ofsted framework

Presented by

Dr Peter Fidczuk - IB Development and Recognition Manager, UK and Ireland

About this talk

Last year, Ofsted published its new education inspection framework, which places emphasis on the breadth of a school’s curriculum offer. The International Baccalaureate’s (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) is a flexible skills-based framework of education that promotes the breadth required under the new framework. If taught in line with the National Curriculum, the MYP can develop students as autonomous learners through its inquiry-based approach to learning and teaching, the IB’s philosophy and its learner profile; ensuring that students are better prepared for the challenges of GCSEs. The programme can be taught in several formats of two, three, four or the full five years to suit each school’s context. Sign up to the webinar to find out how the MYP can benefit your school community. What will the webinar cover? • What is an IB education • Introduction to the MYP and how it works • How the MYP complements the new Ofsted framework • An introduction to the MYP assessment • MYP success stories Presented by: Dr Peter Fidczuk IB Development and Recognition Manager, UK and Ireland Peter is the UK Manager for the International Baccalaureate, and the University Admissions Manager for IBSCA, the network of IB schools and colleges in the UK.
