Examiner - GCE A Level History (2016 Specification) - Newly Qualified Teacher


Pearson are now accepting applications for Examiners from newly qualified teachers (NQTs), as well as experienced teachers.

As a NQT, working as an Examiner will provide you with an excellent opportunity to enhance your knowledge of the assessment cycle and will increase your familiarity with the new specification. 

A GCSE History (2016 Specification) Examiner marks candidates’ responses in accordance with the pre-defined mark scheme, whilst adhering to conditions of recognition and examination procedures. Most subjects will be marked onscreen using ePEN, which can be done from home. A few subjects are still marked in the traditional method, using paper scripts sent through the post. A high level of subject knowledge is necessary in order to apply the mark scheme. Each examiner will receive an agreed allocation of scripts.
