We are looking for competent T Level Marking Examiners to join us in the delivery of the Autumn 2023 assessment series and beyond.

This associate role gives you the opportunity to work alongside your current job, to build additional income with competitive daily rates, and to continue to develop your own skills and development.

The Task Profile outlines the expectations of the Marking Examiner role, and the Person Specification outlines the experience we’re looking for someone to have as a marking examiner.

For more information please see the Person Specification and Task Profile.

There are two Core Examination Papers for Onsite Construction. Both papers are 90-mark assessments consisting of a mixture of short answer questions (SAQ), some of which are structured, and extended response questions (ERQ). The questions assess across assessment objectives (AOs) 1, 2 and 3, allowing for the appropriate differentiation of learners to support in the reliable setting of boundaries.

The Core Examination Papers cover the following elements within the T level core: 

Paper 1

  • Health and safety in construction
  • Construction design principles
  • Construction and the built environment industry
  • Construction sustainability principles
  • Building technology principles
  • Tools, equipment, and materials

Paper 2

  • Construction science principles
  • Construction measurement principles
  • Construction information and data principles
  • Relationship management in construction
  • Digital technology in construction
  • Construction commercial/business principles

Marking Examiners appointed will be invited to attend training and standardisation for marking of these Core Examination Papers.  Please note, unless you express specifically your preference for marking either Paper 1 or Paper 2 in your application, you will be allocated either assessment to mark based on your skills and experience.
