Level 3 workshops can actually deal with innovative ways to approach content but they seem to be are fairly infrequently offered.

I think though, these are only bookable through IB world schools and you wouldn't be able to book yourself onto one for the training.

I'm currently looking at my teacher training options and I was wondering if there were any IB teachers on the site? Are there different routes to train to teach IB rather than GCSE or A-Level?
Depends on what course you do. SCITT trainees at our place have the chance to experience KS3 Humanities, GCSE, A -level and IB syllabii.

To be honest I'd be mad to try and go to anything yet. I'm currently looking at GTP and PGCE training opportunities - one step at a time! I just wanted to clarify that there weren't different initial teacher training courses.
No, no different training, you'd still need to go throught the relevant TT first. You might get lucky and find yourself on practice in an IB school (from the courses I've been on there seem to be increasing numbers of them in the UK), but if you're planning on looking overseas once you qualify, in my experience, the majority of schools accept that if they're getting someone straight from the UK, its quite likely they will not have had IB experience. If I were you, I'd do the initail TT then have a think about where you'd like it to lead and whether it would be worth the extra money to you to send yourself on these courses.
