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

- 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
