About the workshop

The IB Programme documentation makes regular reference to schools working in partnership with parents to support students in their learning. Parents know their children better than anyone else and clearly have the largest stake in their children’s success and progress at school. As a group, parents represent a significant stakeholder within the school community and contribute in many different ways to the community’s success.

Establishing partnerships requires school leaders to play a pivotal role in enabling and fostering effective relationships with parents.


This workshop will explore the notions of community and partnership and the responsibilities that schools, their leadership and parents have in creating and sustaining effective relationships. The opportunities and challenges involved in developing effective relationships will be explored as well as considering a range of strategies to promote and sustain effective relationships. Through engaging with a variety of case studies and real world examples, and extensively drawing upon their own and each other’s experiences and the relevant research, participants will follow a number of lines of inquiry that focus on the role that leaders play in enabling and supporting the development of professional learning communities within IB schools.



This workshop is relevant for new and aspiring leaders in IB schools, who want to explore firstly how systems for teacher evaluation can be developed in their own school communities, and secondly consider how the different systems of evaluation can be developed that are relevant and effective in different cultural contexts.
