The International Primary Curriculum (IPC)
In addition to the English National Curriculum, at BIS Hanoi we teach the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), which is a thematic, creative curriculum for 3 to 12 year olds. The main subjects taught through the IPC are History, Geography, Art and Design Technology, however, there are links with Science, English and Mathematics too. The IPC curriculum involves a clear learning process, with specific learning goals for every subject, as well as for international mindedness and personal learning.
The IPC is used by schools in more than 90 countries around the world. The curriculum has been designed to ensure rigorous learning but also to help teachers make all learning exciting, active and meaningful for children. The IPC takes a global approach to learning, helping children to connect their studies to where they are living now but also to look at learning from the perspective of people in other countries.
