SWOT Analysis of EE process


patents strong brand names good reputation among customers cost advantages from proprietary know-how exclusive access to high grade natural resources favorable access to distribution networks  

Students are generally free to follow their passions (-but not all)


Administrative support from IB coordinator

New research site development

Experienced and knowledgeable staff

The Variety of EEs produced

Final deadline early to ensure process is not too long.

Rolling negotiated deadlines allow flexibility for individuals

Provides essential Uni preparation skills


shifts in consumer tastes away from the firm's products emergence of substitute products new regulations increased trade barriers

Need to avoid denying students the opportunity to study their passions

Currently not all students get 1st or 2nd choice

IBOs introduction of reflection could be 'overkill' on what is already a reflective process.

Where staff are volunteering to support more than 5, the students do not always get the support they need.

Language proficiency of students, especially NCs


lack of patent protection a weak brand name poor reputation among customers high cost structure lack of access to the best natural resources lack of access to key distribution channels

5 Essays is seen as too many to supervise

Suggestion to reduce to 3

Process is too long / drawn out

Causes a negative impact on other subjects early in term 1

8 months is too long

Providing access to suitable 'paid' databases is limited currently

MLA referencing is not used by all departments.

Lack of coordination of approach between departments

Parental interference

Approaching individual teachers

Unbalance load between departments and therefore staff

Not all students able to get their first or second choice

Students can spend a lot of time preparing proposals at a busy time, only one will ultimately be useful.

Some of our weakest students can be denied access to one subject after another.

Too many different supervisors and approaches

No enforced structure


an unfulfilled customer need arrival of new technologies loosening of regulations removal of international trade barriers

Can we find ways to involve more staff as supervisors

Use staff in other areas of the school, Psychology is doing this with a big team, 9 non Psychology staff supported by HOD, NaT, LHe, councillors, DCo, DMc, CFe, Dam, DSh

All department staff to supervise EEs

Would require training, Suggestion to be part of core training for all / new supervisors (CIE)

Encourage non DP teachers

Can we support students better with common skills as a whole cohort

Dedicated time to focus on Methodology/General criteria could be invaluable, Suggestion of one afternoon with different areas for different subjects/groups, Suggestion of one day workshop / lab at the end of grade 11

Feedback from the IB Curriculum review

Introduction of a World EE

Introduction of Interdisciplinary EEs

Coordinator to centralise and coordinate between departments

Suggestion to have a centralized system with students top 3 choices in order and try to ensure all get 1st or 2nd

Teacher librarian to help support research skills

Promote a more even spread between the groups
