Job announcement

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is currently seeking experienced individuals to take on the roles of Examiners Responsible for the following courses:
· Armenian A: literature course
· Belarusian A: literature course
· Bosnian A: literature course
· Lithuanian A: literature course

(These are 4 separate positions.)

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is a non-profit educational foundation offering challenging programmes for a worldwide community of schools. It is now represented in over 120 countries and in over 2,000 schools. The IB provides an international pre-university curriculum and an international university entry qualification, which gives access to higher education on a worldwide basis. You may be interested to visit the public website at www.ibo.org for more details.

One of the characteristics of the IB's diploma programme is that students are required to study, as one of six subjects that constitute the diploma, one of three ‘Language A’ courses, each designed to develop high social, aesthetic and cultural literacy, as well as communication skills. The IB’s Language A: literature course is for students aged 16-18, and involves the study of both literature originally written in the language of the course, and works of other languages and cultures studied in translation. Emphasis of the course is directed towards developing an understanding of the techniques involved in literary criticism and promoting the ability to form independent literary judgments.

Further information about the Language A: Literature course is available at http://www.ibo.org/diploma/curriculum/group1/LanguageAliterature.cfm

The duties of Examiner Responsible include the setting and marking of examinations and may involve occasional (paid) travel to the IB curriculum and assessment centre in Cardiff.

Please note that this position is part-time, involves no relocation, and is usually undertaken in addition to existing work commitments. In addition, examiners will be given clear instructions and be well supported throughout the process.

We are seeking experienced individuals with the following background:
· Native / fluent speakers of Armenian / Belarusian / Bosnian / Lithuanian
· Qualified to at least degree level, in Armenian / Belarusian / Bosnian / Lithuanian literature or related subject
· Teaching experience
· Examining experience (desirable but not essential).

The IB is committed to offering the Language A: literature course in diverse languages, and has so far provided examinations in over eighty different languages, through its policy of mother tongue entitlement, for its international candidature. We would be very keen to hear from all individuals with the above experience.
