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

Chief Examiner for Hindi B

One of the characteristics of the IB Diploma Programme is that students are required to study a second language, in addition to their “mother tongue,” as one of six subjects that constitute the diploma. The IB’s Language B course (first exams 2020) is a language acquisition course designed for students with some previous experience of the target language. Through study of different categories of text types, the course also aims to enable students to adjust their language to be appropriate for the audience, purpose and context in which they are communicating. 

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 Monday, 15th April 2019.

Successful applicants will be notified by the middle of August 2019.

Appointments will take effect from 1st September 2019.

Enquiries should be directed to: examiners@ibo.org
