Markers for Key Stage 4 National Reference Test (NRT)

NFER are recruiting markers to mark NRT in mathematics, English reading and English writing. These tests were introduced by Ofqual to provide evidence on changes in performance amongst GCSE year students.

Markers should have experience of teaching and marking GCSE mathematics or English and be able to attend a training day. This event will take place at a central venue or remotely, i.e. from home, on Saturday 9 March 2019. Following the training day, markers will carry out the marking at home using NFER’s online marking system. Markers will undertake an initial standardisation exercise and will be allocated live marking following satisfactory completion. Markers will be supported by a supervisory marker and their marking monitored for quality throughout the marking period.

The marking period is from Sunday 10 March until the end of Sunday 24 March 2019. Markers must commit to being available for the whole of the marking period and expect to work around 2-3 hours per day.

Payment for attending the marking training will be £150 for the day plus reasonable expenses if travelling to our central venue.

To apply please complete the application form via the link here.

Applications will be accepted up until 30 November 2018.

If you have any queries, please email or call 01753 637007.
