When was the Primary Years Programme (PYP) introduced?
  • The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) was introduced in 1997.
  • The PYP was developed through the vision and effort, sustained over ten years, of the former International Schools Curriculum Project (ISCP).
  • The goal was to produce a common curriculum framework, for students in the 3-12 age range, which would provide continuity of learning within each school and support the development of international-mindedness on the part of learners.
  • The PYP followed the introduction of the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP)—established respectively in 1994 and 1968. The Career-related Programme (CP) was introduced in 2014.
