The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is currently seeking an experienced individual to take on the role of Deputy Examiner Responsible for its Thai Language and Literature 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 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 for more details.

One of the characteristics of the IB's Diploma Programme is that students are required to study, as one of six subjects that constitute the diploma, one of three ‘Language A’ courses, each designed to develop high social, aesthetic and cultural literacy, as well as communication skills.  The IB’s Language A: language and literature course introduces the critical study and interpretation of written and spoken texts from a wide range of literary forms and non-literary text-types. The formal analysis of texts is supplemented by awareness that meaning is not fixed but can change in respect to contexts of production and consumption. This course is available for study in 17 languages. Together, the three areas of exploration of the course allow the student to explore the language A in question through its cultural development and use, its media forms and functions, and its literature. Students develop skills of literary and textual analysis, and also the ability to present their ideas effectively.

Further information about the course is available at: Language and Literature course.

The duties of the Deputy Examiner Responsible include the setting and marking of examinations and may involve occasional (paid) travel to the IB Global Centre, Cardiff, UK.
