Examiner - GCE A Level History (2016 Specification) - Newly Qualified Teacher

Pearson are now accepting applications for Examiners from newly qualified teachers (NQTs), as well as experienced teachers.

As a NQT, working as an Examiner will provide you with an excellent opportunity to enhance your knowledge of the assessment cycle and will increase your familiarity with the new specification.

A GCSE History (2016 Specification) Examiner marks candidates’ responses in accordance with the pre-defined mark scheme, whilst adhering to conditions of recognition and examination procedures.
