Which schools offer the IBCP?

The International Baccalaureate Career Programme (IBCP) is an alternative to the IBDP that’s specifically developed for students who want to focus on career-related learning. It leads to further/higher education apprenticeships or employment. It is the equivalent of the UK's BTEC, although with a distinctly more academic shell.

These schools offer the IBCP:

GEMS World Academy, Singapore – offered in partnership with Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD)
School of The Arts Singapore (SOTA)
