Canadian International School inviting applications for IBDP coordinator position for August 2022.

The Role of the Diploma Coordinator in the IB DP Programme

Canadian International School Bangladesh has been educating the children of many homelands since 2005.  It is a Nursery to Grade 12 school, with Grades 1 to 8 following the curriculum of the Province of Ontario, Canada, and grades 9 through Grade 12 employing the curriculum of the Canadian Province of Nova Scotia.  The addition of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program option will allow for an even broader spectrum of students who will have an even more diverse pathway to university studies.

Education is a preparation for the future, although even the most distinguished citizens would have difficulty agreeing on what that really means. The future is always an unknown, always full of surprises.  Yet regardless of what our students’ adult reality may look like, the IB Program aims to prepare them for all eventualities. It will do this by providing a rigorous, well-rounded instructional program that gives them the skills to survive, an understanding of themselves and the world, and the courage to engage with that future for positive change.

Responsible action begins at CISB. Our mission is to prepare our students to be better individuals and so to make our community and that future world a better place. The IB Mission Statement is linked at the core to our CISB Mission Statement.  Whatever complexities our students will meet, the IB Programme will offer them an understanding of their world and give them the skills to engage that future world responsibly.

It is the Diploma Coordinator’s role to keep this educational program on track. It is up to the Coordinator to provide the leadership and administrative backbone necessary to graduate students who fit the IB student profile.  The Coordinator must work with students, teachers, and school management to pull together the Programme and move it forward. As well, the Coordinator must also work with parents and with the community to enhance an awareness of IB and expand its place in the community education vocabulary.
