Leaders from Kennesaw State University’s Bagwell College of Education recently demonstrated classroom lessons for Marietta High School students in the Early Childhood Education career pathway. Early Childhood Care & Education is one of eleven MHS Career Pathways approved for the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP) and is also “industry certified” by the Georgia Early Childhood Education Foundation (GECEF).
An “industry certified” program has received a “stamp of excellence,” which represents the apex of program quality. Only those programs that have successfully undergone rigorous reviews by leaders from business and industry are recognized with this distinction.
The International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme is an innovative education framework incorporating the vision and educational principles of the IB into a unique programme specifically tailored for students who wish to engage in career-related learning. The aim of the IBCP is to provide students with both an academic and practical foundation to support both their further studies and specialized training, thereby ensuring their success in the workforce. The IBCP combines highly regarded and internationally recognized IB Diploma Programme courses with an approved career-related study and a unique IBCP core.
Students in the pathway will attend the Educators of Tomorrow conference on the KSU campus next month.
