Moderator (for GCSE & GCE specifications)
Moderators review the centre assessment of candidates' work in accordance with the agreed assessment criteria and CCEA's procedures.
Typically an moderator will be required to:
- attend a specification specific Briefing Meeting for each series;
- moderate a specified number of centre samples. This is usually done by:
- sampling for GCE/GCSE;
- sampling for both internally assessed units, or in the case of Art and Design, by centre visits.
- complete documentation to provide feedback based on the accuracy and consistency of the centre's assessment decisions in meeting the agreed standards; and
- complete a written report to be sent to the centre.
Newly appointed moderators for GCE/GCSE will be required to attend a training event, usually held in advance of the Briefing Meeting.
To apply, you must:
- be a fully qualified teacher with one year’s recent teaching experience in a relevant specification area;
- be preferably currently teaching one of the CCEA specifications, or have a broad knowledge of the specification area;
- have the ability to work well under pressure;
- have the ability to meet deadlines;
- be eligible to work in the UK; and
- enhanced criteria may apply.
