  • Provide support to the learner before, during and after their assessment session
  • Problem solve to deal with any issues or difficulties during an assessment
  • Complete an invigilator report for each assessment
  • Support quality assurance activities of assessments
  • Attend training and standardisation activities

Assessments can take place at any time, 7 days a week. You will be asked about your availability at interview.

They are also required to have a quiet place to work from where they will be interrupted or overheard by any other person.
