Joseph Chamberlain Sixth Form CollegeBirmingham

Date posted:
Contract type: Part Time
Salary: see job advert
Contract term: Temporary

We are looking to recruit a number of exam invigilators to join our friendly and well-established team.  The role involves assisting in the supervision and administration of external examinations and acting alongside, or instead of, permanent staff of the College.  You will also ensure that the security and integrity of the examination is maintained in accordance with the regulations of the examining body and of the College.  

We have set up a 'panel' of reliable persons whom we ask to invigilate on specific days or sessions, possibly at fairly short notice.  In view of the increase in examinations this year, we are enlarging this panel.  An academic background is not necessary, the most important qualities required being honesty, integrity and common sense.  Assistance and guidance will be given.  Invigilators will be responsible to the Lead Examinations Officer.

If successful, you would play a vital role in the College, which was graded as ‘outstanding’ in all categories by Ofsted in 2017. We excel in providing a broad, inclusive and high quality education to all of our learners, which has resulted in some of the highest levels of progression to Higher Education in the sector. In 2019, Joseph Chamberlain College achieved A level pass rates of 99.4%, which were the best results in the history of the College. 

The College is situated within easy reach of Birmingham City Centre in a state of the art building with superbly equipped classrooms and outstanding facilities. 

We were featured in the 2015 Parliamentary Review for best practice in further education and were awarded the CPD Mark last year for our comprehensive package of innovative and high impact professional development. We have also been shortlisted for both the 2017 and 2019 TES Sixth Form College of the Year Awards.

The hourly rate of pay is £9.20 per hour (includes 12.07% holiday enhancement) (£11.65 per hour if you are in charge of conducting the examination) and you will be paid for a minimum of 2.5 hours per day, even if the session is shorter than that.  

Closing date: 21st October 2019 (to arrive no later than 12 noon)
