The Role

Corfe Hills School is looking for an Exam Support Co-ordinator to join the current team of invigilators on a casual basis.  You will need to have the flexibility to be available during all exam and mock exam periods. Exams and mock exams run all throughout the school year apart from December and April.

In this role you will be responsible for setting up specialist exam rooms which requires the collection and return of papers, various equipment and computers.  You will need to be confident using IT including memory sticks and loading programs for students.   You will need to be available throughout the exam in case any issues arise which will need to be resolved promptly.  As part of this role you will also be required to invigilate in non-specialist exams and provide support and assistance with the examination process. This will involve assisting with the setup of examination venues, ensuring candidates do not speak during exams and dealing with any queries raised by candidates during the exam.  You will also need to check attendance and supervise candidates leaving the examination venues. 

This is an excellent opportunity to develop current skills and gain greater experience in working with young people and promoting the high expectations of Corfe Hills School.
