Think Differently, Be Creative!

Welcome to the CCAAIBWS!

Dear friends and colleagues,

I am honored to serve as the Chairman of the Caucasus and Central Asia Association of IB World Schools (CCAAIBWS). Our mission is to promote continuous improvement, collaboration and the development of the IB ethos and its programmes in the Caucasus and Central Asia region.

At CCAAIBWS, our aim is to provide support and assistance to IB candidates and IB World Schools in the region, and to represent our member schools at meetings with organizations and authorities. We also aim to arrange round tables for teachers, coordinators and other employees of our member schools, to ensure that our community is always growing and thriving.

I welcome you all to join us on our mission and to be a part of our association. Together, we can make a difference and drive positive change in education in the Caucasus and Central Asia region.

Warm regards,

Francesco Banchini
Chairman, CCAAIBWS
