International Baccalaureate® (IB)

Founded in 1968, the International Baccalaureate® (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation offering four highly respected programmes of international education. The programmes encourage both personal and academic achievement, challenging students to excel in their studies and in their personal development.

As part of assessment processes the IB works with examiners and senior examiners in a variety of different roles. Examiners are appointed to mark externally assessed work or to moderate internally assessed components (reviewing the original marking of teachers).

Acting as an IB examiner provides an international educational experience, encompassing unique professional development opportunities and an insight into the assessment process.

Applications for all subjects, across all programmes, are accepted throughout the year.

Provided an applicant has experience teaching a subject at the appropriate level, and to the specified age group, they do not need to have previously worked as an IB teacher.
