Career - Related Programme (IBCP)

JNIS is a candidate school for the Career-related Programme

The International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme is the fourth IB programme which is designed for students of 16 to 19 years of age. It is a unique programme designed to bring the academic rigour and global focus of the IB through career-related courses.

The IBCP provides an opportunity for students to integrate the career-focussed courses of their choice with selected IBDP subjects. This flexible framework allows students to integrate academic knowledge and practical, hands-on career skills. This combination of academics and experience empowers candidates to gain 21st century skills and better adapt to workplace requirements.


IBCP Curriculum Model

The IBCP framework model consists of three elements –

Diploma Programme (DP) courses at standard level (SL) or higher level (HL)

A core consisting of:
• Personal and Professional Skills
• Service Learning
• Reflective Project
• Language Development

A career-related study


IB Diploma Programme:

In order for students to inculcate both the School and IB missions, JNIS seeks to provide a supportive and stimulating environment for individual explorations. Our institution upholds the rigorous standards of inquiry based learning within an academic framework that is both broad and deep. For the IB Diploma Programme at JNIS, subjects are offered across the 6 groups - Studies in language and literature, Language acquisition, Individuals and societies, Sciences, Mathematics, and The Arts. This enables the students to choose a balanced curriculum.

Under the IB Career-related Programme, in addition to the Career related studies , students are required to undertake related DP subjects - at higher or standard level.

CP Core:

The CP Core is mandatory for all students enrolling for the programme.

Personal and Professional skills goals aim to emphasize skill development at the workplace by developing transferable skills like personal development, intercultural understanding, communication and thinking skills.

Service Learning enables students to make meaningful contributions to the community and society. Through service, students develop and apply personal and social skills to real life situations.

The Reflective Project is a cumulative work, based on an investigation of an ethical dilemma associated the workplace and modern business operations. It fosters intellectual discovery and creativity, and promotes research and communication skills.

Language Development allows students to appreciate different cultures through an additional language in the context of their career-related studies.

Career-related studies:

At JNIS, the career-related options have been designed to match the aspirations of the students.

Our partnerships with Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) and World Academy of Career Placements (WACP) provide students with options from career-related courses in the fields of art, information technology and management.
