Become an Examiner, Moderator, Reviser with CCEA

Moderator (for Vocational qualifications)


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:

  • be a fully qualified teacher with three years' recent teaching experience in a relevant vocational area;
  • have a broad understanding of assessment methodology, including portfolio development 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 moderating 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.
