The one-, two- or three-year pre-IBDP programme
The pre-IBDP programme is aimed at students aged between roughly 13 and 16. Depending on the time of application, we offer a one-year, two-year or three-year option. The pre-IBDP programme is an excellent preparation for the students’ final two exam years of IB Dutch A. It also complies with the MYP e-assessments. The main objective is that students feel secure and confident in their command of the Dutch language.
The teaching material developed especially by IBID is dynamic, thought-provoking and international:
We attach great importance to personal contact between student and IBID teacher. Teaching and coaching go hand in hand because students are all different and because they work at various levels depending on their background. The teacher can adapt the lessons entirely to fit in with the specific circumstances of each individual student. Because the students themselves are involved in this process, they have a say in their own made-to-measure programme, which is highly motivating.
What does pre-IBDP teaching material look like? Take a look at an example
Dutch A Literature SSST
In the IBDP, students can choose the programme Dutch A: Literature SSST (Standard Level). SSST stands for ‘school supported self-taught’, which means that the programme is not taught at the day school but that the student prepares for the exam himself or herself through independent study supervised by an external tutor. IBID offers this external tuition.
The IBID programme is fully in line with the curriculum and final attainment levels set by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO). The teaching material we developed is efficient, varied and flexible:
A crucial component is the weekly feedback, which contributes to the personal support. We challenge students to develop their ideas and to express them as accurately as possible. The intensive guidance we provide allows us to monitor the progress closely.
The IB Dutch A: Literature SSST programme covers two academic years.
In close consultation with the school, IBID can also provide a ‘made-to-measure’ programme in the form of a one-year accelerated programme. This may be necessary if circumstances have prevented a student from taking Dutch A Literature SSST in the first year of the IBDP. Furthermore, we sometimes have students who wish to take the ‘anticipated exam’ for IB Dutch A Literature SSST in the first IBDP– year.
Dutch B SL+HL
Dutch B is a ‘taught course’, developed for classroom teaching. When there is no Dutch B-teacher available in school, and a student has urgent reasons for choosing Dutch B, the school may seek for IBO’s permission to work with an online tutor. IBID qualifies for tutoring services for both Dutch B SL (Standard Level) and Dutch B HL (Higher Level).
The IBID-programme for Dutch B is fully in line with the curriculum and final attainment levels set by the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO):
The IBID-tutor will work in close cooperation with the student’s IB-school, which is crucial in all aspects of the course, especially regarding the oral exam. The IB-Dutch B programme covers two academic years.
