MYP moderators

The role of the moderator

Moderators are teachers in IB World Schools offering the MYP, ideally with experience of teaching the final year of the programme. Successful applicants must undertake online training before beginning their work.

The training is monitored by experienced senior moderators whose support is available throughout the process. Moderation of samples and writing of reports for the eight schools normally allocated to each moderator must be completed by the end of June. A fee is paid for each sample moderated.

The role of moderator affords an opportunity to gain professional development in the assessment of MYP student work and to exchange ideas via an online forum with teachers from other schools. The experience gained by teachers during the moderation process can be of great benefit to teaching and learning in the school.

Should you or any colleagues wish to apply to become an MYP moderator please review the recruitment policy below prior to completing an application form.
