Michael, OCR Geography Examiner
My examining experience has been hugely beneficial to my career. It has allowed me to teach my students how to get better results and be considered a very good teacher in my early career. It was also a big factor in getting me appointed as Director of Sixth Form. As an Assistant Head, much of my job has involved working with departments to help them raise the examination pass rate in their subject."
Rachel, OCR Physical Education Examiner
Being an examiner has certainly provided me with a greater knowledge of the course content. As an examiner I have become more familiar with the style of answer that is required and how to mark student work throughout the year, providing greater levels of feedback for the students, which is fundamental to their progress.
The role has enabled me to improve the quality of my own teaching and the grades achieved by my students, which has linked well with performance management targets. It is certainly a role that I will continue with to help improve further the success of this subject at my school."
Nicole, OCR Media Studies Examiner
When I started examining as a NQT, OCR provided not just training for examiners, but a range of networking opportunities, including online forums, up-to-date blogs and people who were generally online as much as me. As a bonus, the marking team were also a really friendly bunch. I was welcomed by my Team Leader, and encouraged and praised. I felt part of the team in no time.”
We provide full training and ongoing support and a dedicated helpline once you start assessing with us.
