The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is currently seeking to make the appointment of:

Chief Examiner for Information Technology in a Global Society (ITGS)

The IB DP information technology in a global society (ITGS) course is the study and evaluation of the impacts of information technology (IT) on individuals and society. It explores the advantages and disadvantages of the access and use of digitized information at the local and global level. ITGS provides a framework for the student to make informed judgments and decisions about the use of IT within social contexts.

The Chief examiner is principally responsible for setting and maintaining the academic standard for their subject(s). They are therefore closely involved in setting question papers, marking candidates’ work, and determining the final grades of candidates.

As such the position of Chief examiner entails a commitment to attend meetings for activities such as question paper editing, examiner standardization and grade awarding.  These meetings may be face-to-face or held online.

As a Chief examiner the post holder is also a member of the examining board for the IB.  The examining board ensure that the IB programmes as a whole are coherent and fit for purpose.

A Chief examiner may also be invited to participate in curriculum and assessment development alongside teachers, external consultants, and IB academic staff.  However, the IB currently operates a seven year cycle of curriculum review for individual subjects and courses, therefore the exact nature of this involvement will vary according to timing.

All essential and desirable skills, qualifications and experience are listed in the recruitment policy available on the IB senior recruitment pages.

The position is normally held for a period of five years, with an annual review.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday, 2nd January 2019.

Successful applicants will be notified by the end of March 2019.

Appointments will take effect from 1st September 2019.
