Approaches to

Learning Skills

The IB approaches to learning skills (ATL) are grounded in the belief that learning how to learn is fundamental to a student’s life in and out of a school context. The approaches to learning and associated sub-skills support students of all ages in being agentic and self-regulated learners.

All IB programmes support learners in developing: Thinking skills, Communication skills, Research skills, Self-management skills and Social skills IB Students are expected to progress in their confidence in them in a developmental way. In the PYP students become AWARE of the learning skills. In the MYP students ACQUIRE the learning skills through the implicit and explicit teaching of specific strategies and techniques. In the DP students AMALGAMATE the learning skills in the completion of each task.



The PYP offers an inquiry-based, transdisciplinary curriculum framework that builds conceptual understanding. It is a student-centered approach to education for children aged 3-12. It reflects the best of educational research, thought leadership and experience derived from IB World Schools.


Middle Years

The MYP* aims to develop active learners and internationally minded young people who can empathize with others and pursue lives of purpose and meaning.



Made up of the three required components, the DP core aims to broaden students’ educational experience and challenge them to apply their knowledge and skills.
