Ensuring effective education
We are pleased to announce that The Leigh UTC is a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate (IB)Middle Years Programme and is seeking authorisation as an IB World School.
“Learning in the IB community celebrates the many ways people work together to construct meaning and make sense of the world. Through the interplay of asking, doing and thinking, this constructivist approach leads towards open, democratic classrooms. IB students and teachers are lifelong learners, independently and in collaboration with others. Learning communities in IB World Schools engage in cycles of inquiry, action and reflection that lead to deeper understanding and a lifetime of learning. Learning is the central tenet as well as the outcome of developing purpose, culture, and environment in IB schools.”
