About the role 

As a moderator, you’ll be looking at samples of candidates’ coursework to make sure that a centre’s marking is accurate and consistent. You’ll be part of a team and you’ll work closely with your team leader.

For remote moderation, either the centre will post samples of coursework to you or you’ll download them from a central repository.

We’ll make sure you are fully trained so you understand the moderation process and your part in it. There will also be standardisation activities to make sure you can apply the marking criteria consistently

The amount of work involved will vary depending on the mode of moderation and the level of the qualification.

Typically, the window for remote moderation is around four weeks long and falls within the period May to June. You would generally moderate around 16 centres with about six samples per centre. We’ll quote specific details and fees when we offer you a moderation task.
