Examining and moderating is a rewarding, unique and interesting task / activity that can be undertaken alongside your existing role. There are a range of other benefits which are summarised below:
Enhance your subject knowledge
As an Examiner or Moderator, you will gain an invaluable insight into the assessment process at WJEC, enhance you skill set and also, increase the understanding of your subject. All of which can enhance your teaching.
Once you are an experienced Examiner or Moderator, there are opportunities available to progress to a senior role such as Team Leader or Principal Examiner / Moderator. More senior roles involve working at the very heart of your subject and undertaking tasks such as writing question papers and mark schemes, working as part of a specialist team to develop new specifications or managing a team of subject specialists.
Network with other teachers and experienced professionals
Build your contacts throughout the assessment process by networking with other teachers who deliver the same specification. The examining and moderating process involves interactive discussion and sharing best practice which you will find beneficial.
Receive comprehensive training and support
We provide first class training, guidance and support throughout the assessment process to ensure that you are confident in the work you will undertake. Our extensive support network is in place so you can contact your dedicated Team Leader or Principal Examiner and WJEC's Appointees team as you work through your allocated scripts. You will also have the opportunity to learn from experienced Examiners and Moderators at the face-to-face training conference.
While examining and moderating work is very rewarding and interesting, the role is flexible as marking can be completed from home and alongside your current teaching position.
Boost your income
We offer our Examiners and Moderators a competitive pay package for the work undertaken and we also cover any travel expenses to attend meetings. Where applicable, accommodation may also be covered. Terms and conditions apply.
