Training and events



As a teacher with IB Japan, we'll provide you with a thorough training experience when you start. Whether you are new to teaching as a career, or already have experience, our training will help you reach the next level. You'll continue to receive additional training and feedback about your performance during your time as a teacher with us. We believe in supporting our teachers, so that they can reach their full potential. This is an outline of the modules you'll complete during your first weeks here at IB Japan.

In addition to this full week of training, you'll also have the benefit of observing teachers applying our pedagogy in a real classroom environment. We don't believe in throwing a teacher directly in the classroom without any preparation, so this is done before you begin teaching on your own. This transition period provides the best chance of success for everyone. We're with you every step of the way.
