Scarborough Sixth Form College
(Hourly paid, Casual basis)
We are seeking flexible and committed individuals to join our team of examination invigilators.
As invigilator, your role will be to provide support to the examination process, ensuring the fair and proper conduct of examinations whilst enabling students to perform at their best.
Duties will include collecting papers and setting out rooms beforehand, giving out instructions and supervising during examinations and collecting and collating papers at the end. At times you may be asked to act as a reader, scribe or prompt, to supervise students with examination clashes or to assist with other examinations administration.
Good communication and organisational skills are important, along with an ability to be accurate and attentive to detail. You must be able to develop a sound understanding of examination rules and regulations set by the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) (https://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/ice---instructions-for-conducting-examinations) and have the confidence to enforce these. However, it is equally important that you are able to empathise with students and deal with their concerns sensitively, in what is a stressful and important time for them. The ability to deal calmly and professionally with unexpected or emergency situations is key.
The invigilation and examination team is led by the Examinations Officer, Kieren Moore, and supported by the Examinations Assistant, Daniel Pledger. Full training will be given, so previous experience of invigilation is not essential, but you will need to have worked in an education environment or with young people previously.
Please note that additional casual work may be available to the successful candidate as a Cover Supervisor (providing supervision of classes to cover absence of teaching staff), subject to relevant experience. Further details regarding this position can be provided at interview.
The successful candidate will be appointed to point 15 of the College’s support staff pay spine, which is paid at £9.38 per hour, including payment for pro-rata holiday entitlement (based on a full-time, full-year salary of £16,002 p.a.).
