WE LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU
Recognising and Rewarding Examiners’ Commitment Annually, 34, 000 examiners mark 8 million qualifications for 2 million 15 -19 years olds in England, Northern Ireland Wales. In 2016 the Examiner Capacity and Culture Working Group launched: • Two new award schemes to recognise exceptional individual examiners, and schools’ and colleges’ contributions to the profession, and. . . • A new website for teachers and school leaders interested in learning more about becoming an examiner and sharing best practice. The website hosts resources, case studies and useful materials for teachers, heads of department and schools leaders alike.
JCQ Award for examiners, moderators, exam setters From 2017, the JCQ award gives formal recognition to examiners, moderators and exam setters who have made a sustained contribution to examining (three or more years with one awarding organisation), and to encourage them to continue examining and/or moderating for several years. In future years, awards will be offered for five or more, and ten or more, consecutive years’ active examining service. Qualifying examiners will receive a letter and certificate recognising their services to examining, which can be added to their portfolio and include on their CV, providing evidence of the teacher’s commitment to ongoing CPD.

Centres need to feel that they have support. Through your visit, we certainly feel like we have. It is so lovely – and refreshing – to have direct support (with a specific person) if I need it. I'm only a little disappointed I did not look into this exam board a few years ago!
