Pearson have exciting opportunities for Teachers, Newly Qualified Teachers and Lecturers to become Examiners for our General Qualifications.

An Examiner marks candidates’ responses in accordance with the pre-defined mark scheme, whilst adhering to the conditions of recognition. Most subjects will be marked onscreen using ePEN, which can be done from home. A few subjects are still marked in the traditional method, using paper scripts sent through the post. A high level of subject knowledge is necessary in order to apply the mark scheme. Each examiner will receive an agreed allocation of scripts.

Becoming an Examiner is a great opportunity to:

  • Develop your career in education
  • Earn some extra money in a part-time role, alongside any full time commitments you may have
  • Gain invaluable insight into assessment
  • Network with likeminded professionals in your field.

Competencies required

  • You will have the ability to work well under pressure
  • You will have the ability to meet deadlines
  • You will have a high level of subject knowledge in order to apply the mark scheme.
