Become an Examiner, Moderator, Reviser with CCEA

Moderator (for GCSE & GCE specifications)


Moderators review the centre assessment of candidates' work in accordance with the agreed assessment criteria and CCEA's procedures.


Typically an moderator will be required to:

  • attend a specification specific Briefing Meeting for each series;
  • moderate a specified number of centre samples. This is usually done by:
    • sampling for GCE/GCSE;
    • sampling for both internally assessed units, or in the case of Art and Design, by centre visits.
  • complete documentation to provide feedback based on the accuracy and consistency of the centre's assessment decisions in meeting the agreed standards; and
  • complete a written report to be sent to the centre.

In Addition

Newly appointed moderators for GCE/GCSE will be required to attend a training event, usually held in advance of the Briefing Meeting.



To apply, you must:

  • be a fully qualified teacher with one year’s recent teaching experience in a relevant specification area;
  • be preferably currently teaching one of the CCEA specifications, or have a broad knowledge of the specification area;
  • have the ability to work well under pressure;
  • have the ability to meet deadlines;
  • be eligible to work in the UK; and
  • enhanced criteria may apply.
