The subject goals cover the knowledge  (the facts and information children might learn), the skills (those practical abilities children need to be able to do) and the understandings (the deeper awareness of key concepts which develops over time).

There are subject Learning Goals for Language Arts, Mathematics, Science,   ICT & Computing, Technology, History, Geography, Music, Physical Education,  Art and Society.

The IPC Personal Goals underpin those individual qualities and learning dispositions we believe children will find essential in the 21st century. They help to develop those qualities that will enable children to be at ease with the continually changing context of their lives.

Opportunities to experience and practice these are built into the learning tasks within each unit of work, and referenced at the end of every task to signpost opportunities for teachers to further develop them.

There are 8 IPC Personal Goals - inquiry, resilience, morality, communication, thoughtfulness, cooperation, respect and adaptability.

The IPC is unique in defining International Learning Goals that help young children begin the move towards an increasingly sophisticated national, international, global and intercultural perspective and develop a sense of ‘international mindedness’. Each IPC unit has embedded within it, across the different subjects, learning-focused activities that help children start developing a global awareness and gain an increasing sense of themselves, their community and the world around them, as well as inspiring positive action and engagement with global issues. In addition to this, each thematic IPC unit of work includes specific tasks related to International as a subject in its own right.
