Become an IB examiner

As part of assessment processes the IB works with examiners and senior examiners in a variety of different roles. We are constantly looking to recruit new, skilled examiners and senior examiners as the IB continues to grow.

IB Examiners

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.

Please use the following application form to apply. Before doing so, please read the examiner recruitment policy. 

Examining for the IB can also count towards maintaining your role as a teacher, with IB examiners being able to apply for US teacher credits.
