IB Career-Related Programme (to study from September 2019)
The International Baccalaureate Career-Related Programme (IBCP)
This is ideal for students who wish to engage in career-related learning while gaining transferable and lifelong skills in applied knowledge, critical thinking, communication and cross-cultural engagement.
Students study at least two subjects from those shown in the Diploma table, alongside a career-related qualification.
The CP originated from an IB project that began in 2004 in Finland, which led the IB to develop and pilot this programme with IB World Schools authorized to deliver the Diploma Programme (DP). Following a review involving schools around the world, the IB’s fourth programme was launched in 2012 under its original name IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC).
In 2014, the CP (formerly named IBCC) was shortlisted for the prestigious World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) award which recognizes innovative international education projects that transform society.
Our OCR Cambridge Digital Media course contains a wide range of units on media products and audiences, pre-production and planning, Social media and globalisation, and web and graphic design.
This will allow their creativity and flair to be harnessed in the design and production of media products used within the industry. Students will also gain an understanding of how different businesses and organisations in the media sector work.

This pathway will allow our students to gain employment in roles such as Digital Layout Artists, Digital Graphic Designers, Freelance Reporter, Web-developers/Designers, Animators; Computer Graphics Modellers alongside Media and Marketing fields.
