Description

Here at Elite IB, we have helped support over 2,000 IB students and families around the world to navigate the world of the IB- an immensely rewarding but admittedly at times also a confusing place to be!

As IB graduates turned IB educators, we are lucky enough to have experienced both sides of the programme, and in our interactions with parents over the years, we have listened to and answered an enormous variety of questions, undertaking research to ensure we are prepared to answer virtually any IB-related query.

Through our work, we have supported students at each stage of their IB journey from the early years of the MYP (Middle Years Programme, ages 11-16), through the full Diploma Programme (16-19) and, in some cases, to resitting final IB exams. As such, our expertise is focused not around one particular age group, but on one educational outlook, and we aim to provide all encompassing IB support throughout a student’s IB studies, guiding and supporting, rather than dictating or instructing, at all times.

Please take a moment to view our resources page, which has a wide range of useful documents providing guidance for students and parents of the IB.


This workshop is geared towards parents of IB students in either the first or second year of the IB Diploma Programme, and we draw on our experiences supporting families who have put several children through the IB programme to those who come to the IB with no prior knowledge or experience, and everything in between.

The seminar will cover a variety of topics, including:

  • IB subject selection, balancing academic strengths with university ambition

  • Motivational techniques

  • Understanding key IB deadlines

  • Transitioning from IGCSE, MYP or a national curriculum

  • Understanding internal assessments

  • Where can I go for IB advice and resources

  • Supporting multiple IB children simultaneously

  • Creating a supportive environment

At each seminar, we will provide a selection of useful resources including our own IB guidebook, designed both for students and parents, and welcome any queries you may have about how best to provide support during your child’s IB studies. Please note that this workshop is designed for parents, rather than students, in order to create an atmosphere of openness and honest dialogue between parents.
