1 CAS helping to bring the IB Learner profile into the IB Diploma

2 Within the Diploma Programme, CAS provides the main opportunity to develop many of the attributes described in the IB learner profile.

3 For this reason, the aims of CAS have been written in a form that highlights their connections with the IB learner profile.

4 The CAS programme aims to develop students who are:

5 Aims of CAS actively pursuing individual interests as an important counterbalance to the academic pressures of the rest of the Diploma Programme.

6 Aims of CAS active participants in sustained, individual and collaborative projects.

7 Aims of CAS students that understand their own strengths and limitations, identify goals and devise strategies for personal growth. Reflective Thinkers

8 Aims of CAS willing to accept new challenges and new roles. Risk-Takers

9 Aims of CAS aware of themselves as members of communities with responsibilities towards each other and the environment. Caring

10 Aims of CAS students that enjoy and find significance in a range of activities involving intellectual, physical, creative and emotional experiences. Balanced

11 The nature of Creativity, Action, Service...if you believe in something, you must not just think or talk or write, but must act. (IBO)

12 Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) is one of the three essential CORE elements in every student’s Diploma Programme experience.

13 CAS involves students in a range of activities alongside their academic studies throughout the Diploma Programme.

14 The three strands of CAS, which are often interwoven with particular activities, are characterized as follows:

15 Creativity: arts, and other experiences that involve creative thinking.

16 Action: physical exertion contributing to a healthy lifestyle.

17 Service: an unpaid and voluntary exchange that has a learning benefit for the student.

18 How are students going to do this? CAS enables students to enhance their personal and interpersonal development through the cycle of experiential learning.





23 What will be the characteristics of a good student CAS programme?

24 Students will have meaningful reflections and documentation of their activities. (The aim is for quality rather than quantity.)

25 Students have carried out individual and collaborative CAS activities/projects.

26 Students have demonstrated the 8 Learning Outcomes through the entire CAS programme. (These outcomes are based on the IB Learner profile.)

27 The Learning outcomes are…

28 1. Increased awareness of their own strengths and areas for growth. (Derived from being Balanced and Inquirers)

29 2. Undertaken new challenges (Derived from being a Risk-taker)

30 3. Planned and initiated activities (Derived from being Inquirers and Communicators)

31 4. Worked collaboratively with others (Derived from being a Communicator)

32 5. Shown perseverance and commitment in their activities. (Derived from Caring)

33 6. Engaged with issues of global importance. (Derived from Knowledgeable, Thinkers)

34 7. Considered the ethical implications of their actions. (Derived from Open minded, Principled and Reflective)

35 8. Developed new skills. (Derived from Balanced)

36 How are we going to know if students have achieved these outcomes?

37 Watching the students carrying out their wide range of challenging activities.

38 CAS advisers will conduct 3 interviews.

39 By seeing student reflections and documentations in a variety of forms that include:

40 Blogs Power point presentations Podcasts Video/film Diaries or journals

41 A good CAS programme should be both challenging and enjoyable, a personal journey of self ‑ discovery.

42 Each individual student has a different starting point, and therefore different goals and needs, but for many their CAS activities include experiences that are profound and life ‑ changing.

43 “ All that we do is but a drop of water in the ocean. But if we didn’t contribute that drop there would be no ocean.” (Mother Theresa)
