Examiner - T-Levels Construction: Design, Surveying and Planning
What are T Levels?
T Levels are new courses coming in September 2020, which will follow GCSEs and will be equivalent to three A levels.
These two-year courses have been developed in collaboration with employers and businesses, so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares students for work.
T Levels will offer students a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience during an industry placement of at least 45 days. They will provide the knowledge and experience needed to open the door into skilled employment, further study or a higher apprenticeship.
The T Level Examiner role is an excellent opportunity to earn some extra money in a part-time role, alongside any full-time commitments you may have, whilst also developing your career in education.
T-Level Examiners mark candidate responses in accordance with a pre-defined mark scheme, whilst adhering to the Code of Practice and published examination procedures. Assessments will be marked either onscreen using ePEN, which can be completed from home, or by the traditional method, using paper scripts sent through the post. A high level of contemporary subject knowledge is necessary in order to apply the mark scheme. Each examiner will receive an agreed allocation of scripts. Some national travel may be required to attend examiner training and standardisation.
We have opportunities available to mark Core Paper 1: Science and Building Technology, Core Paper 2: Construction Industry and Sustainability and the Employer Set Project.
