Become an IB Examiner for Environmental Systems and Societies
(bilingual English-French)

As part of assessment processes, the IB works with educators in a variety of different roles. We are always looking to recruit new, skilled examiners and senior examiners as the IB continues to grow.

As an examiner you will play an important role in maintaining the quality of assessment for which the IB is known worldwide. This experience will enable you to:

  • Enhance your professional development
  • Expand your subject knowledge
  • Earn extra income working from the convenience of your home

Founded in 1968, the International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation offering four highly respected programmes of international education that develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills needed to live, learn and work in a rapidly globalizing world.
We strive to develop students who will build a better world through intercultural understanding and respect.

The interdisciplinary nature of the Environmental systems and societies course requires a broad skill set from students and includes the ability to perform research and investigations and to participate in philosophical discussion. The course requires a systems approach to environmental understanding and problem-solving, and promotes holistic thinking about environmental issues. It is recognized that to understand the environmental issues of the 21st century and suggest suitable management solutions, both the human and environmental aspects must be understood. 

Applicants must have:

  • a degree or equivalent in the subject (or a related subject) for which they are applying,
  • a minimum of one year’s experience teaching the subject (or a related subject) to students in an appropriate age range:
  • 16 to 19 years of age – DP
  • applicants who are no longer teaching must have taught or examined within the last three years
  • ability to work in English and French
  • access to the internet, via a broadband (or faster) connection, in an environment that is suitable for marking confidential assessment material

IB teaching experience is not essential.
