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

Chief Examiner for MYP Mathematics 

The study of mathematics is a fundamental part of a balanced education. It promotes a powerful universal language, analytical reasoning and problem-solving skills that contribute to the development of logical, abstract and critical thinking. The MYP mathematics and extended mathematics courses promote both inquiry and application, helping students to develop problem-solving techniques that transcend the discipline and are useful in the world outside school.

The Chief examiner is principally responsible for setting and maintaining the academic standard for their subjects. They are therefore closely involved in setting assessments, 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 assessment production editing, examiner standardization and grade awarding.  These meetings may be face-to-face or held online.

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.

The Chief examiner for MYP mathematics is also required to act as a Principle examiner for mathematics or extended mathematics.

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 26th February. 

Successful applicants will be notified by the start of April 2018.

Appointments will take effect from 1st September 2018.
