We are seeking to appoint a dynamic and enthusiastic Examinations Support Officer, who, reporting to the Timetable and Data Assessment Officer, will be responsible for the efficient and effective implementation of all examinations; this will include external, internal and online tests for Y7 to Y13 students as well as younger students in our junior academies.  Duties will include all administrative aspects of examination support, ensuring all legislative and procedural changes from examination boards are implemented effectively, co-ordination of a team of casual invigilators, and contributing to general operational day to day requirements.

The Examinations Support Officer will ideally have experience of working in a similar role, however, training will be provided.  This is an exciting role and is seen as a key appointment in developing the progress of students within the academy. 

 You will be: 

  • able to work alongside the Timetable and Data Assessment Officer to ensure all examinations , arrangements are implemented successfully
  • able to effectively and efficiently manage and deploy a team of invigilators and resources 
  • committed to promoting positive values, attitudes and behaviour, and equality of opportunity for all
  • able to develop and maintain positive working relationships with staff and students across the academy and wider trust

 * The role is based at Aston Academy but is likely to involve working at other academies within the trust. 

** There will be a requirement on occasions to work outside of regular hours and due to the specific demands of examinations, the length or hours of the working day may vary as needed.
