Program of Inquiry

The PYP framework is dynamic because a transdisciplinary programme of inquiry leaves room for emergent and unexpected ideas, directions and connections that students might encounter.

Specifically, students and teachers engage with:

  • the programme of inquiry—the structure that articulates what, when and how learners explore the transdisciplinary themes from 3–12 years
  • concepts that have relevance across, between and beyond the subjects and that connect knowledge to enable learners to build conceptual understandings
  • the approaches to learning and approaches to teaching both crucial for developing inquiring minds and the skills needed to explore concepts and subject knowledge
  • reflection and taking action to enhance individual and collective understanding and learning or to address personal, local and/or global challenges and opportunities. (
