There are well over 1800 IPC schools in more than 90 countries around the world; all of them part of the IPC learning community.

As IPC members, these schools share experiences, resources and ideas and create a global community to enable children and teachers to learn from each other.

IPC Accreditation and Self-Review

IPC Accreditation demonstrates that schools have taken IPC activities and resources, and used them to transform learning in the school.

This is assessed by a self-review process that schools are encouraged to use alongside implementation of the IPC. It includes strands on how the IPC should be implemented for learners, teachers and leaders, and it encourages schools to engage the community in their children’s learning.

Schools use the IPC self-review process in a number of ways:

  • as a performance management tool to focus on what professional learning is needed,
  • to engage learners, teachers, leaders, parents and the wider community in learning,
  • as a resource to check on how well the school is implementing the IPC,
  • and to gain accreditation status.

When you reflect on your own practice, share what you do and measure it against the IPC accreditation criteria, it provides a clear focus for moving forward and allows the staff to celebrate what they are doing and to ultimately provide a consistency across the school towards your focus on learning.
