Examiner (for Vocational qualifications)
Examiners are responsible for marking candidates' scripts to the agreed mark scheme.
Typically a examiner must:
- receive an agreed number of scripts and mark a sample of them for the Standardisation Meeting;
- attend a Standardisation Meeting for each examination series, at which the mark scheme is discussed;
- mark all scripts within a specified time period; and
- receive mentoring and supervision from a supervising examiner.
To apply, you must:
- be a fully qualified teacher with three years' recent teaching experience in a relevant vocational area;
- have a broad understanding of assessment methodology and internal standardisation;
- have the ability to work well under pressure;
- have the ability to meet deadlines;
- be competent in the use of ICT;
- be eligible to work in the UK; and
- meet enhanced criteria which may apply.
Ideally, you will:
- currently teach one of the CCEA specifications, or have a broad knowledge of the vocational area; and
- have examining experience.
We also welcome applications from teachers and lecturers who are fluent in Irish, or have experience in Special Educational Needs, who are qualified in this specification area.
