Become an Examiner, Moderator, Reviser with CCEA

Irish-Medium Moderator (for Statutory Assessment skill areas)


Moderators review the centre or school assessment of the learners or pupils, working to the agreed assessment criteria and our procedures.


Typically a moderator must:

  • attend a specification specific Briefing Meeting for each series;
  • moderate a specified number of centre or school samples;
  • complete paperwork providing feedback on how accurately and consistently the centre's or school's assessment decisions meet the agreed standards; and
  • complete a written report to be sent to the centre or school.

In Addition

We require newly-appointed moderators to attend a training event, which is usually held before the Briefing Meeting.



To apply, you must:

  • have three years' teaching experience in the Irish-Medium Sector, in the appropriate Key Stage and Cross-Curricular Skill;
    have three years' relevant experience working within the appropriate Key Stage and Cross-Curricular Skill, in the Irish-Medium Sector, which CCEA deem appropriate (e.g. Education Support Services work);
  • have a third level qualification in Irish;
  • have knowledge of the NI Curriculum and new assessment arrangements;
  • have experience of making teacher-based assessment judgements;
  • ensure capability and willingness to work both independently and as part of a team;
  • be eligible to work in the UK; and
  • meet enhanced criteria which may apply.


Ideally, you will have:

  • experience of agreement trialling processes and/or experience of internal standardisation;
  • experience of end of Key Stage assessment; and
  • experience of working or participating in an online environment.
