INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE CAREER-RELATED PROGRAMME
In striving to empower our Jordanian youth through equipping them with the required knowledge and diverse academic paths that strengthen their life skills and prepare them to open up to intercultural dialogue and local as well as global experiences, and arising from our trust and belief in the quality of education IB Programmes avail schools, ASG and BSA have adopted the fourth IB program. The IB Career-related Programme (IBCP) provides our students with the option to pursue a more career-oriented path in both their junior and senior years.
As part of the IBCP programme, students are required to take a minimum of two Diploma Programme courses, complete a Reflective Project, participate in a Personal and Professional Skills (PPS) course, engage in 50 hours of service learning, maintain a Language Portfolio and also take International BTEC career-related courses that result in either obtaining a career qualification or college credits.
BTEC stands for the Business and Technology Education Council. BTECs are specialist work-related qualifications. They combine practical learning with subject and theory content. BTECs are now awarded by the Edexcel exam board and are taken in more than 100 countries at all levels.
BTECs are developed in consultation with employers and higher education experts, so they can trust that anyone with a BTEC will demonstrate the high standards of knowledge, practical skills and understanding required for further study and employment.
Our school is now certified to offer Edexcel BTEC Level-3 90-credit Diploma in IT and Business.
To meet this end, each IBCP student spends at least 2 years in career-related studies. The two sectors currently in place at ASG and BSA are Business and Information Technology (IT). A basic requirement of the IBCP is for each student to leave the program with a career-related certificate or credits authorized by an external accredited body.
