National Centre for Excellence - IBCP Learner's Profile

The CP Core

The core components are designed to bridge each student’s chosen academic courses and his or her Career-Related studies, while developing skills and competencies for lifelong learning. The core components are:
  • Personal and Professional skills. This aims to develop skills needed to successfully navigate higher education, the workplace and society.
  • Service Learning, which involves the practical application of knowledge and skills toward meeting an identified community need. Students apply personal and social skills in real-life situations involving decision-making, problem-solving, and responsibility.
  • Language Development - This encourages students to begin or extend the study of an additional language that suits their needs, backgrounds and contexts, in order to develop linguistic and communicative abilities and increase their understanding of the world.
  • Reflective Project. An in-depth body of work produced over the duration of the programme in which students identify, analyse, and critically evaluate an ethical issue connected to their Career-Related studies.
