The SGIS Design Teachers’ Group was established in 2022 by Secondary MYP Design and DP Design technology teachers in Swiss international schools.

A small group of schools have met in the past to discuss topics of mutual interest such as:

  • Developments in the MYP and DP programmes
  • Health & Safety
  • DP moderation of student IA work
  • Project ideas
  • Materials, tools and equipment

Schools have also organised events such as a visiting speaker from the IB, the International inventions fair in Geneva and accredited Health & Safety training courses.

A Whatsapp group has been created with the aim of sharing ideas and concerns.
