Job Description

New Directions are looking for Home School Exam Invigilators in the Rhondda Cynon Taf area.

There are pupils that may need to be home schooled throughout the year due to various reasons, an example being emotional behavioral difficulties. The council will arrange home tuition throughout the year for the pupil but when the exam season takes place the council will need additional support to help facilitate the exams for these pupils.

We are looking for candidates who drive as you will need to pick up an exam paper from the local examination centre (school) travel a short distance to the pupils home or local library where you will then invigilate the exam, returning the paper to the examination centre when complete.

Exam Invigilating is a great way to be introduced to the Education Sector, it can be done on a part time basis or can be used to gain experience and potentially move into other roles within a school setting.

The work is flexible, seasonal and pays £10 per hour.

To be placed as invigilator you will need to hold a full enhanced child only DBS (which we can arrange), complete our level 1 safeguarding course.
If interested please make contact with the school support services team on 02920 390 133 option 5.
