What is our income spent on?
The majority of ASIBA’s work is performed on a voluntary basis by people who are committed to the OIB and the development of international education more generally.
However, there are a number of costs that ASIBA has to meet in order to ensure the viability of the OIB. For example, ASIBA subsidises the annual OIB training sessions. This includes Cambridge Inspectors’ consultancy fees, transport, accommodation and subsistence. Training teachers on examining procedures and standards does not involve only new colleagues; it is vital for quality assurance in the examination and is therefore important for all OIB teachers. It can also be a source of professional development. The role played by the Cambridge inspectors in this work is a central one.
ASIBA also depends on membership fees and donations to carry out other activities in support of the OIB such as bearing the expenses of ASIBA representatives at university admissions conferences to promote the OIB, subsidising the costs incurred by oral examiners, and providing essential services to teachers, parents and students such as the ASIBA website and communications systems.
ASIBA would also like to be able to offer bursaries for students who demonstrate the potential to benefit from the double enseignement but do not have the means to pay the fees required by sections that are not subsidised.
