The Postgraduate Certificate in Education (International Baccalaureate) PYP has been designed to provide you with a deep understanding of the philosophy and concepts underlying the International Baccalaureate®, and the Primary Years Programme (PYP) in particular.
The Postgraduate Certificate in Education (International Baccalaureate) PYP is delivered by the University of Melbourne and is hosted by Asian International College, Singapore.
This course is recognised by the International Baccalaureate® for the IB Certificate in Teaching and Learning (previously the Teacher Award Scheme).
This postgraduate qualification is also an articulation pathway to a Master of Education from the University of Melbourne.
Delivery & Duration
The course consists of 4 subjects delivered sequentially on a part-time basis over a 12 month period, with each subject delivered over approximately 3 months with a short break between each subject to ensure adequate time for content delivery, engagement in learning tasks, reflection and the preparation of assessment items.
The course includes over 70 hours of face-to-face contact. Each subject will be delivered by staff from the University of Melbourne at Asian International College in Singapore.
Each subject is scheduled as an intensive delivery, minimising the time that the participants are out of their classroom and away from schools. The schedule is also designed to allow participants from around the region to travel to Singapore to complete each intensive and then return home to complete the assessment tasks.
