Dear Theo - exam marking posts?

    I would like to do some work for exam boards over the summer but am not sure where to look for these vacancies. Do I just approach them directly?
    I am currently a science NQT, would I have enough experience or do these positions go to more senior teachers?
  2. If you go to the website of the exam board you'd like to work for, they will have the information about any vacancies and links to the application process.
    It's very time pressured (at least in History it is) so that's something to consider before applying.
    Good luck!

    Thank you, does anyone know which months this work tends to be held in? Is it always outside of term time?

    No, it's not out of term time, because it's when the exams are sat.
    This means mainly in May/June.
    Best of luck!

    The TES Careers Advice service runs seminars and workshops, one-to-one careers and applications advice, one-to-one interview coaching and an application review service.
    I do Application and Interview one-to-ones, and also contribute to the Job Application Workshops. We look at application letters, executive summaries and interviews.
    The next Workshop I'm doing that still has vacancies is on Friday 25th February. There is also a specialist Workshop for applications to SLT on Saturday February 19th.
    Go to https://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storyCode=6060678 for more details of these and other seminars.
    Look forward to seeing you!
