The International Baccalaureate® (IB) is currently seeking to make the appointment of: Chief Examiner for Physics
The Diploma Programme physics course allows students to develop traditional practical skills and techniques and increase their abilities in the use of mathematics, which is the language of physics. It also allows students to develop interpersonal and digital communication skills which are essential in modern scientific endeavour and are important life-enhancing, transferable skills in their own right.
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.
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, providing that an initial term of three years is successfully completed.
The closing date for applications is Tuesday 1st November 2016.
Successful applicants will be notified by the beginning of March 2017.
Appointments will take effect from September 2017.
Enquiries should be directed to: email@example.com
