The IPC stands for clarity of what children should learn. Every IPC orientated school has its distinct learning process with a structured approach to make sure the learning experiences of children are as stimulating as possible. With the IPC your child’s learning takes a global approach, which helps them to connect their learning to the community they live in, as well as seeing the learning from a perspective of other people in other countries.

Learning Goals

The foundation on which the IPC is built are learning goals. There are learning goals for each subject of the primary curriculum. Secondly, there are learning goals for children’s personal development, and for the development of their international mindedness and learning.
The IPC learning goals for all subjects of the primary curriculum are defined for each age phase: ages 5-7 years, ages 7-9 years and ages 9-12 years.


The IPC was originally designed and created by Fieldwork Education to provide an international curriculum for a group of 14 schools around the world. Since its introduction in 2000, the IPC is now the curriculum choice of international and national schools in over 1,800 schools in over 90 different countries around the world.

The IPC was four years in preparation and its continued development today ensures that a current and highly relevant curriculum continues to evolve. It is one of the fastest growing curriculums in the world today.
