The International Baccalaureate, a non-profit educational foundation, is currently seeking experienced individuals to take on the roles of examiner responsible for its Korean A: language and literature course.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) offers programs for a worldwide community of schools and is represented in more than 120 countries and in more than 2,000 schools. It provides an international pre-university curriculum and an international university entry qualification, which gives access to higher education on a worldwide basis.
The IB diploma program requires students to study a language A course as one of six subjects that constitute the diploma. The IB’s Language A: language and literature courses are for students aged 16 – 18 who have experience using the language of the course in an academic context. The courses are based on the study of both language and literature, with a focus on how the study of texts produced in a language is central to understanding the world in which we live. The texts studied in this course are diverse and the literature elements include works studied in translation.
The duties of examiner responsible include the setting and marking of examinations and may involve occasional (paid) travel to the IB assessment centre in Cardiff, UK. This position is part-time, involves no relocation, and is usually undertaken in addition to existing work commitments.
Suitable candidates will be native or fluent speakers of Korean, qualified to at least degree level, and will have teaching experience. Examining experience is desirable but not essential.
To apply for the position or to obtain further information, contact the Examiner Training and Recruitment Department by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
