Pathways School Gurgaon joins a progressive group of IB World Schools to deliver IB Career-related Programme (IBCP) through multiple academic streams designed for students to develop 21st century skills. World Academy of Career Programmes (WACP), the leading global educational research organization, has introduced its career-related courses at the Pathways School Gurgaon.
Students of grade XI and XII at the Pathways School will now be able to choose career programmes in Artificial Intelligence, Sports Management, Business Administration, Accounts & Financial Management, among others. These programmes share synergy with the latest reforms in the education world, including the Government of India’s National Education Policy 2020 (NEP2020). As per OECD Future of Education and Skill 2030 report, the world has changed rapidly and new professional careers have emerged globally and it becomes imperative to develop their skill sets to become industry ready.
Capt. Rohit Sen Bajaj, School Director at Pathways School Gurgaon, says “Education industry across the globe has seen a major paradigm shift. The advent of specialized fields in various sectors over the last decade has necessitated the need for relevant academic courses to prepare the next generation of entrepreneurs and managers. Moreover, we already offer Primary Years Programme (IB PYP), Middle Years Programme (IB MYP), and Diploma Programme (IBDP). Our decision to take up the IB Career Programme (IBCP) was only natural as we feel IBCP is the right choice for our students who are looking at keeping pace with the changing world and want additional career options, and our collaboration with WACP offers excellent options with their Career programmes around proven pathways.”
Stefanie Leong, Head of Development & Recognition Asia-Pacific, International Baccalaureate said, “The CP is a future-ready IB programme that prepares students for further studies and success in the workforce. The CP’s unique blended approach of academic study and career skills enables students to pursue their passions and engage in career-related learning while gaining transferable and lifelong skills in applied knowledge, critical thinking, communication, and cross-cultural engagement. Preparing our young generations to be future-ready and create a better world is at the heart of the IB’s mission. We are delighted to see the impact of an IB education in our school community in India.”
The IBCP is recognised by Association of Indian Universities (AIU) as a Grade 12 qualification. The IBCP is also recognised by many universities in India & around the world for undergraduate degree programmes. WACP career related programmes are curated by a team of industry experts to bridge the gap between the industry and academia creating the best pathways for students to enter the universities in India or around the world. The programme builds a strong foundation and helps the student to become career ready through industry projects, internships, workshops, presentations, masterclass, case studies and many more experiences.
