Exam Invigilators and Readers/Scribes for exams, including mocks

John Ruskin School is looking for Exam Invigilators and Readers/Scribes to assist with examinations throughout the school year. Previous experience in such a role will be an advantage, although a full induction and training period will be undertaken.

An Invigilator, under the guidance of the Examination Officer, is responsible for conducting examinations in accordance with examination board guidelines and maintaining the security of the question papers.

An Exam Reader can act as both an Invigilator and as a reading support to candidates who have an identified exam access arrangement in place. This may involve reading the whole paper to a candidate on a one-to-one basis or working with a small group of candidates who may request only some words to be read.

An Exam Scribe is a specialist role. The purpose is to ensure students are not disadvantaged in an exam due to either a temporary hand injury or an established access arrangement. Scribes must be able to write, at a reasonable speed, what the candidate has said whilst adhering to very strict exam board regulations regarding spelling, punctuation and grammar.

John Ruskin School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of its students. All applicants are subject to the requirements of Keeping Children Safe in Education guidelines. This will include checks with past employers and the need for the successful applicant to undergo a suitable enhanced DBS disclosure.

Please use the application form available on the button at the top of this page.

Hourly rate £9.50
