Thank you for your interest in organizing a cluster event. Through this application form, you can formally submit your request to the IBAEM regional office. We advise that you please read through the information below carefully before you proceed with your request.DefinitionCluster events are on-demand training events that consist of one or more workshops organized to meet the professional development needs of two or more schools located within close proximity of one another. Cluster events are designed to ensure that specific local training needs can be met, and provide collaboration and networking opportunities for educators, while eliminating or greatly reducing the travel costs associated with participation in existing face-to-face PD events. Cluster events are hosted at a venue provided by the applicant (host school) and managed by the IBAEM PD Delivery team. Through this form, you can request a maximum of five concurrent workshops. If you would like to request more than five workshops, please contact PDIBAEMCluster@ibo.org to discuss your training needs in greater detail. Similarly, this form only allows you to request workshops for one specific 2-day period of your choosing. If you would like to request workshops on different dates, please submit multiple requests.Criteria for cluster eventsThe IB will review requests based on the criteria outlined in the cluster event guidelines, and reserves the right to decline any requests that do not meet certain requirements.
