The IB Career-Related Programme

The IB Career-Related Programme: an alternative academic pathway

We are pleased to announce that the Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz will be offering the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (CP) from the school year 2018/19.

The CP is an innovative international education pathway for students aged 16 to 19. It integrates academic courses from the International Baccalaureate’s highly regarded and internationally recognised Diploma Programme as well as an approved career-related study programme and a ‘core’ into a rigorous framework of education. This ensures that CP students commit themselves to a challenging programme of study whilst acquiring transferable skills in applied knowledge, critical thinking, communication, and cross-cultural Engagement.

The Lyceum Alpinum’s own distinctive version of the CP has been specifically developed for students who, during their final two years in Zuoz, wish to focus on career-related, applied learning in a field which genuinely interests them before progressing to a higher education programme (and, ultimately, to a career) in business and/or related Areas.

CP students at the Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz will follow

  • two Diploma Programme courses ( Design Technology, Maths Standard Level or Maths Studies) Click here for more information

  • a CP Core programme consisting of four components: Approaches to Learning, Community and Service, Language Development, and a Reflective Project.

In order to further strengthen the practical aspects of this course of study, the Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz has set up a unique partnership programme with a leading private bank and a world-class hotel. A limited number of internship places, to be awarded on a competitive basis, will be available to our students.

The IB Career-related Programme qualification is well regarded by many renowned universities and provides a strong foundation for future academic and professional success.
