The ISL IB Diploma College 3-to-1 support model has the student as its centre.
This indicates not only that student support is personalised, but also that the student is the decision-maker. We build into our programme the expectation that students are equipped to make well-informed, balanced decisions about their learning, their personal development and their futures.
This begins from the very start of the programme, during the CAS residential trip and continues to be visible in many ways: in the university-like relationship between a student and their Extended Essay supervisor; in the target-setting conversations that take place in 1-to-1 meetings with tutors; in the tools students use under the guidance of the Higher Education counsellor to choose their pathway to the future.
Students also take an active role in decision-making at the College through student government. Class representatives meet with the government executive to take action around the campus and beyond. Student government is consulted by the college leadership on matters related to learning and facilities.
We know that our graduates will be decision-makers in the future, and we prepare them.
College Students Embody Student Agency
CAS provides an enriching aside, whilst remaining parallel, from academic learning through extracurricular activities and community service.
At the Diploma College, students plan and lead on a number of interesting and valuable CAS projects which support their studies.
s part of 3-to-1 support at the College, in choosing futures students receive advice and guidance in making well-informed choices about their future education and careers. After initial orientation about where in the world to study, and how different university systems work globally, they then meet individually with a Higher Education guidance counsellor who supports them step by step in researching, shortlisting and applying to universities worldwide.
Model United Nations Conference
MUN is a popular activity for those interested in learning more about how the UN operates. Diploma College students take part every year at all educational levels. Many of today’s leaders in law, government, business and the arts – including at the UN itself – participated in MUN as student.
