From October 2009 Scotch has also offered the IB Diploma for Years 11 and 12. This curriculum initiative provides exciting and innovative challenges for the teaching and learning programmes of the school. The IB program gives equal standing to all curriculum areas, so that students moving through the School will not only have the best in a comprehensive education but also the opportunity to develop excellence.
Similarly, Scotch College is committed to the careers of its staff. The opportunity to work in the International Baccalaureate programme makes Scotch staff employable all around the world. An Enhancing Classroom Programme (developed through a Joint Venture with the University of Western Australia) is offered to assist teachers to further develop their classroom skills and teaching repertoire. A cutting edge IT system has been introduced to ensure teachers have the latest technology at their disposal for the development and presentation of innovative teaching methods. An extensive co-curricular programme assists teachers build relationships with their peers, students and their families outside the classroom. The course management structure gives staff the opportunity to gain experience in managing and coordinating curriculum areas and the pastoral care process allows all staff to actively engage with boys and their parents.
