Moderator (for Vocational qualifications)
Moderators review the centre or school assessment of the learners or pupils, working to the agreed assessment criteria and our procedures.
Typically a moderator must:
- attend a specification specific Briefing Meeting for each series;
- moderate a specified number of centre or school samples;
- complete paperwork providing feedback on how accurately and consistently the centre's or school's assessment decisions meet the agreed standards; and
- complete a written report to be sent to the centre or school.
We require newly-appointed moderators to attend a training event, which is usually held before the Briefing Meeting.
To apply, you must:
- be a fully qualified teacher with three years' recent teaching experience in a relevant vocational area;
- have a broad understanding of assessment methodology, including portfolio development and internal standardisation;
- have the ability to work well under pressure;
- have the ability to meet deadlines;
- be competent in the use of ICT;
- be eligible to work in the UK; and
- meet enhanced criteria which may apply.
Ideally, you will:
- currently teach one of the CCEA specifications, or have a broad knowledge of the vocational area; and
- have moderating experience.
We also welcome applications from teachers and lecturers who are fluent in Irish, or have experience in Special Educational Needs, who are qualified in this specification area.
