IB Chief Examiner for Chinese B (as a second language)
The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is currently seeking to make the appointment of:
Chief Examiner for Chinese B
Language B is a language acquisition course designed for students with some previous experience of the target language. Students further develop their ability to communicate through the study of language, themes and texts. There are five prescribed themes: identities, experiences, human ingenuity, social organization and sharing the planet.
The Chief examiner is principally responsible for setting and maintaining the academic standard for their subject(s). They are therefore closely involved in setting question papers, 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 question paper editing, examiner standardization and grade awarding. These meetings may be face-to-face or held online.
As a Chief examiner the post holder is also a member of the examining board for the IB. The examining board ensure that the IB programmes as a whole are coherent and fit for purpose.
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 ability to work in both Mandarin and Cantonese is highly desirable.
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, 4th November 2019
Successful applicants will be notified by the middle of March 2020.
Appointments will take effect from 1st September 2020.
Enquiries should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
