Become an IB Examiner for Psychology (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.

IB psychology examines the interaction of biological, cognitive and sociocultural influences on human behaviour, thereby adopting an integrative approach. Understanding how psychological knowledge is generated, developed and applied enables students to achieve a greater understanding of themselves and appreciate the diversity of human behaviour. The ethical concerns raised by the methodology and application of psychological research are key considerations in IB psychology.

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:

  • 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
