The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is currently seeking an experienced individual to take on the role of Deputy Examiner Responsible for its Japanese ab initio course.
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation offering challenging programmes for a worldwide community of schools. It is now represented in over 150 countries and in over 5,000 schools. The IB provides an international pre-university curriculum and an international university entry qualification, which gives access to higher education on a worldwide basis. You may be interested to visit the public website at www.ibo.org for more details.
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 ab initio course (first exams 2020) is a language acquisition course designed for students with no or little previous experience of the target language.
The duties of Deputy Examiner Responsible include the setting and marking of examinations and may involve occasional (paid) travel to the IB Global Centre, Cardiff, UK.
Please note that this position is part-time, involves no relocation, and is usually undertaken in addition to existing work commitments. Examiners will be given clear instructions and be well supported throughout the process.
